I just learned of Mr. Richard's passing and am sorry for your loss. He was such a gentle spirit with a huge heart for others. As a former caregiver, I learned that one of his favorite things was to sing so we would play his favorite DVD of the chorale reunion he had hoped to attend several years ago. We had the best time just singing along to the DVD. Louise, I pray that your faith will see you through this difficult time and that you will find peace and comfort from the memories of all your special times with Mr. Richard.

Uncle Tinney looks so much like our good friend Hal Chapple...his nephew.
We first met him at Wake Forest’s Healthy Lifestyle Center.
He was so very gracious and kind with a good sense of humor.
We saw him at a concert and at a basketball game at Reynolds...both times he greeted us warmly..such a wonderful smile that could light up the room. ..
Our hearts are with his family as we know he will be missed by all.
