Amy and family. Although I never officially met Richard, I heard him laughing often while I was at your house. He always seemed to be in a pleasant mood. I'm thankful that he fought for our country and his honor to America is greatly appreciated. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you during this time. Remember to celebrate his life and use this time to strengthen your families bond.
