Mr. Richard became a friend of mine from the first day i met him, He was so sweet and kind hearted. I started out cleaning their home and then taking Mr. Robert to see him while he was at the hospital. I will always remember the last visit we had on Friday. Rest on Mr. Richard you will truly be missed,

Buddy was my name for Rick. We all had lots of fun times together. I will truly miss his wonderfully sweet smile. He will always be in my heart with many happy moments that we always shared. He also was so knowledgeable on so many subjects. I will always think of him and Robert as a beautiful couple who were always kind to others. You will always be in my dreams and prayers
