Richard was my Sponsor during my journey through the RCIA program at Saint Luke's Catholic Church here in Temple. He was an inspiration and was my mentor while I studied to become a Catholic. I am indebted to him for his support and loving care during my spiritual journey.

May God Bless Agnes and his extended family during this time of sorrow.
