I remember always going to Uncle Richard and Aunt Jeri"s house with my Dad. I think they were always working on cars. Then I would always call Aunt Jeri and mess with her. I miss her. You both will be missed. Love You RiP♥️♥️♥️♥️

A memory I have was when we all were staying at Uncle Charles’ house after Uncle Richard returned home from Germany. He bought a fancy stereo system and albums which were shipped home to Florida. We thought that was so cool. We would listen to the Beatles and Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” albums over and over. There was also an “Up With People” album and Shelly and I could sing every song on that album. Uncle Richard also had a blue Camaro and he would drive it really fast at least down Sheldon Rd when he came to visit (I am guessing all the time). He put (I think they were called glass pipes) a set of loud mufflers on it. That blue Camaro sent me to a trip in town to get stitches and crutches to walk with because I cut my foot really bad washing it (a long story). I didn’t realize Uncle Richard was only 9-1/2 years older than us. He was always nice to us when we were young. I am happy I have fond memories from his time around us. I hope his children have wonderful memories to hold in their hearts too. Rest In Peace Uncle Richard.
