I will never forget the great times we had as a family. Joe loved to play golf, go to the beach and cut up with friends. Joe was always a friend when you needed one. He was very generous with his time, talent and treasures. He loved being with family of all ages, especially with young children. Joe was a true hero, a veteran of WWII, and he carried out those virtues with everyone in his life. We were all very blessed to have known him. With love, from Kitty Allen and all the Richardson family.

Even though, we all know this day will someday come, but it is hard to accept that you've gone to the world above where only you can see us from there while we can only see you in our heart and memories. I'm so glad I made myself to see you in 2014 at least. Poppa Joe, may you rest in peace.

Your Dew from Thailand
