For all who read this. Please know that Richard (my brother in law) would have been honored by all who attended his memorial. There were really no words to honor a man who fought for our freedoms that we share today. Please continue to pray for Barbara and Bryan in the days of decisions ahead. Thank You Richard S. Evans.

It was with great sorrow that I read of the passing of fellow legionnaire and Brother Evans. I only meet Brother Evans once but that was a lasting meeting. Rest assure that Brother Evans has left this worldly assignment for an assignment at a higher headquarters.
