Richard was the very first rep who called on me when I opened my first store. He made me laugh when I wanted to cry and laugh harder when I wanted to scream. He will forever be one of my very favorites. I know you're in heaven my sweet one ... there's no "mema-looking" clothing up there. xox.

Heaven gained a wonderful, funny and caring man when Richard got there. I am sure he is keeping everyone laughing. His smile would really light a room.
I was blessed to call Richard Morgan my friend. He was always there when you needed him. I just wonder if there are plenty of 3/4 sl. shirts in heaven. LOL (inside joke at Foxcroft) he did enjoy the business and taking care of his customer. He will be greatly missed by all. Love you Richard. RIP

Another Richard memory as we both loved seeing and feeling the F 16 burst into the skies and as quickly zoom away...every time he said he would give his right arm to be a passenger...

And Margaret, it is your time to take really good care of yourself....See you at the beach. Hugs......Laura Cole

Jack and I were so sorry to hear about Richard's death. What a fine and funny man he was. I'll always remember laughing with him over the wonderful stories he told. Emily and Tommy were blessed to have had him in their lives, as were so many of his friends, and he was blessed in return. I'll miss seeing him dancing and am so glad to know that he'll be in the Hall of Fame...a richly deserved honor. RIP, Richard.....you'll be missed 'til we all meet again.

One of first unusual conversations with Richard, a total stranger, was about torque converters...he was surprised that I knew anything about the subject and I was equally surprised that he knew anything about the subject. We delighted in that memory for the next 15 years ...

Richard will be missed by all who called him friend. His million-watt smile could certainly light up any room. I have many memories of many good times with Richard which I will treasure. But I know that he is in heaven now, pain-free and smiling!

My condolences go out to Richard's family, and to Margaret for taking such good care of him. He will will missed by all. I'm sad he didn't make it for his upcoming Hall of Fame induction, but glad he knew he was to be honored.
