My name is Brenda Dokes, and I'm still a legal secretary with the Center for Arkansas Legal Services. Richard and I would occasionally talk during his employment with the Center. He was always soft spoken and willing to help. He was really good at showing me shortcuts to the word processing program we used.
I love to hear him call my name, he would pronounce it with such softness and clarity. He was truly a kind and loving person. My only regret is that we did not stay in touch with each other after he left. If we had more men like Richard in the world, it would be a much better place. I pray that the family will let the memories of such a wonderful person kept them uplifted.

Brenda Dokes. Legal Secretary

Mr Richard was such a loving caring man. He would play with our dog EVERYDAY and it was the sweetest thing to see. He would talk to me my husband and kids for long periods of time. We looked out for each other, we fed him and it would light up his heart.
Mr Richard we are missing you ! Missing his unique voice and missing someone telling us to have a great day ! Just someone as sweet and loving as him ! We will forever remember him !
(Zoe made a painting and said it was Mr Richard in heaven)
WE LOVE YOU! always
