Another loss of such a special friend from childhood weighs heavy on our hearts. We have said goodbye to so many in the past few years and with each passing our circle gets smaller. Sammy tells me such amazing stories of the things you all did together and what you all shared as children from Happy Hollow and Fulton Hill. Richard you could always take any sad situation and turn it around with your humor, you were personality plus. I will always remember you yelling from the end of the hallway at John Marshall to me calling out "Gaynoodle" with a whep whep at the end. You will truly be missed by many. RIP and God Bless all.

I am including a pic of Richard (5th from the right) with many of his childhood friends at one of our fun-filled Fulton Hill Reunions. To remain friends with so many for so many years is a true blessing for all.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Richard's passing.... I think back on all the fun and crazy things we did in our youth... It's hard to realize that we all must at some point say our goodbyes....it just seems like there are too many these days..... Richard, you will be missed so much..... I send my thoughts and prayers to your family back home..... Love.....Linda

P.S. I attach a fun photo of a group of us having a crazy time at Bryan Park in 1961....those were the days...my friends, those were the days....!
