Richard was my "dancing partner". I loved listening to his stories about his family, the rodeo and volunteering at the hospital. He made a tremendous impact on my life and he will hold a special place in my heart. Blessed to have known him.

Thoughts and prayers are with the James’ family at this time. I so enjoyed volunteering with Dick at Memorial Hermann Hospital. He was always talking about his wife, children, grandkids, and mother in law. It was very apparent he was a true family man. Pam McCullough
