Connie I'm so sorry for your loss. I loved Richard and will really miss him. He was such a character and I loved being around him. He could really make me laugh and I will always remember his humor. He was a real cool person to be around always made me smile. I can now look up and remember those times. He was a good Dad and a great pop pop to all his grand kids who I know will miss him. He will always be in my heart as I know he will be in many. I'm am so sorry for all the family. I know he will be greatly missed by all of them. My love and prayers go out to all. I'm so glad he got to be a great part of mine and my family's life's. All my love to you. Debbie

Connie - I will always remember the day at Turkey Hill Dog Park when my friend Richard with his dog Patty mentioned in one of his stories that his wife was a nurse! He immediately called you at work at Gale Bailey - we reminisced about our time on 2 East at PMH & as school nurses in the nineties. My love to you & the girls. Oh how he loved you all - especially those grandkids!

Our deepest condolences go out to you and your family during this difficult time. I use to work with Mr. Larsen at Providence Hospital and he always kept me laughing with his stories of deer hunting experiences, and would pull out his little pocket knife at the drop of a dime. He will be truly missed but always remembered when we look up at the stars.
