Our deepest condolences to all of you. Will miss my Uncle Richard so much.....his love of life and his silly stories. Will always remember fondly our picnics, Sunday afternoons at Grandpa's house, many trips to the coast and of course all of our holiday get-togethers. He left us with so many good memories. Hold those close to your heart and he will always be with us. Love to all, John and Donna
