I’m sending prays for my Aunt Doris and my cousins and their families. It will be hard not having him here with us. I loved his smile and that cute laugh of his. Last year Kenny and I would occasionally go to Western Sizzlin in Moore on Thursday evenings before going to visit mom at Village on the Park. We found out that Uncle Richard and Aunt Doris met with friends for dinner on Thursday evenings and Western Sizzlin was one of their hangouts. On several occasions they would stop by to visit mom after dinner and so we got to spend time with them as well as mom. We loved visiting with them. They talked about the past and the present, it was so much fun reminiscing. They told us about their square dancing experiences and tried to talk us into joining, they loved it. We stopped going out to eat on Thursday evenings after mom passed away so we missed seeing them too, it's been eight months. I have always looked up to Uncle Richard all my life; a great role model and a wonderful person. I will truly miss him. Keep remembering all the fun times you had with him, he will always be in our hearts. I love you all.

Uncle Richard was a quiet and sweet man that was loved by many. He had a fun personality and was a joy to be around. I know that he had a very special place in my momma's heart!! She loved her baby brother! We loved him too!

I know you all will have a lot of rough days ahead without him. I can only suggest that you focus on all the fun memories that you have! Cling to each other as a family! We love you guys and will be praying for you daily.
