Uncle Richard had The Best Personality! He loved to laugh! My husband Don & I used to always say he would make a great fill-in for Rrowin & Martin's Laugh In because he looked just like one of the guys! (Guess you had to be old enough to enjoy the sitcom) But he was just as funny!!
I also remember spending some good times as kids when he would come to the house and visit my Dad. Always loved seeing him and look forward to spending time with him!!
We will miss that laugh and kind soul! I don't think he ever had too many unkind words towards many! The only thing I regret is that I wish it would have worked out last year for us to get together! But we can't go back. I guess it wasn't meant to be.
Rest peacefully We will Always Remember You!! 💖

I miss you already, that great laugh and the talks we have almost every week. I so hate that I missed the last one. I know you are having a wonderful time with all the family up there. We will all see you again one day. RIP my sweet uncle.

Him telling Heidi he was getting that piece of cornbread.. My heart breaks knowing I will not get that call again.. But so glad he is up there with all the family that's gone before him. RIP Uncle..
