So sorry to hear of Richard's passing. He was a good neighbor to have. We met Richard when he moved to our area a few years ago. He was such a nice man and we would invite him to our cookouts in the summers and had so much fun getting to know him.
When I go outside in our back yard his dogs would be in their back yard and I couldn't resist going over and giving them a doggy treat. He will be missed by his neighbors. Thoughts and Prayers to his family.

We just learned of Richards passing...... So sorry to miss family night... We were sad to hear of yet another loss in your family. Please know how very sorry we are. To have lost two within 2 months is like getting knock down by the waves in a rough ocean.
Wishing all the family strength & peace.
