Richard was always patient when explaining things. I have a vivid memory of being invited out to their house when he was still keeping bees and having him show me the whole process regarding processing the honey and all the products that can made from the wax. He always made people feel comfortable.

We enjoyed being neighbors to Peggy and Richard when we lived in Sperryville. We went to the Oyster festival in Tom’s Creek with them. At church we saw them with Cindy and Ricky. Richard and my husband shared a Navy background. Peggy was sweet and my husband went over to eat with them while I worked the evening shift.

My Granddad and I used to have the best times going trout fishing, listening to old country music, watching westerns, eating seafood, and talking about life in general. He would always like talking about the family tree and who my kin were and how good God was to us. He and my Grandma are the definition of love for each other, family, friends, and God. He was a truly genuine man who enriched my life in a way that can never be duplicated.

God bless you, Granddad. You are always in my heart until we meet again on THE mountain!
