Our dearest cousin Trish and all the family, what a handsome picture of Richard and lovely write-up. We know what a sadness this brings to you and to all of us with the loss of one more member of our precious family. With deep love, we will see you on Friday for some hugs and cries.
John 5:24 - "I tell you the truth, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life." Be comforted that Richard was a believer in Jesus and is now in a safe and happy place to be seen again.
Love to all of you, The Tom Stoddart family.
