Maureen and Family, I was so sad to hear of the death of my
godson Richard. I spoke to him while in the hospital and
he sounded positive about getting help with his illness. I know
he is with the Lord and he will not have any more pain. He is
resting in peace. The Lord will also have all of Richard’s family
find peace during this sad time. Sincerely aunt Willa
