Having known my Nephew since his early years I have a couple of memories. I remember him playing baseball when the ball was placed on top of a small pole and hitting the ball and run. It felt so good to see him hit ball and run. He spent a lot of time and retired from the Air Force at same Base at same time. It was a time when he called me to come him and help start his car. I watched out for apartment and put his mail inside. He didn’t tell me how many News Papers he was getting. Richard was very smart and he filled some very important jobs and I was very proud of him and I Loved Him even though we were separated for most of his life. A good man that’s gone way to fast. I’m sure he will be in a mighty better place. I Love You Richard!!!
