I cannot remember a time that Richard was not in my life. I think he and Nancy started dating when I was 4 or 5. He has always been kind and loving. He has always been an example of a Godly man to my family and many others as well. I will miss you!!!!! Enjoy your new home with Jesus and we will see you sometime in the future.
