|Let the memory of Daddy-Richard be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our father , Richard E. Worrell (Daddy Richard) who was born on February 12, 1909 and passed away in March 1991. We will remember and love him forever.
"Thank you to all of my beautiful family and friends who left tributes to my wonderful father! It's great that you chose to share your memories of him. Always knew he touched a lot of people other than his children, grandchildren, and others who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him during his life! We will be forever grateful to you for your kind words! Love you all."
"Reverend Worrell...we'll never ever forget him. He was part of our growing up and those Sunday services, along with your mom, the pianist , singer, and choir leader. It's like they are a part of our history. We always thoroughly enjoyed hearing the Preached Word from Rev. Worrell."
I was so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for anointing me with my ministry! Forever I will love and cherish our times together. Love Always, Nell"
"Granddaddy Richard, my fondest memories of you were of your elustrous smile, your warm hugs & kisses, your melodious voice and powerful preaching. Even though my time with you seemed so brief. I cherish the times God allowed us to be in your presence. You always left us with some word (s) of wisdom. Love and miss you dearly! Happy Heavenly Birthday Granddaddy Richard! Sincerely,
Elizabeth "DeeDee "Worrells Linton"
"I remember being at your house one time. Daddy Richard walked in, sat at the piano, started playing and singing. I was in awe. I also remember one time during the summer that we were working at school. We needed rain and he said we need to pray. I agreed with him, he then asked if God would recognize my voice. LOL. We both laughed and he tapped me on the shoulder. He raised a wonderful family of which I'm glad to call my friends. Happy Birthday with Jesus, Rev. Worrell."
"Missing my Daddy Richard. Will always be my inspiration. You and Mo continue to bless my life. Trying to live this life so I can one day live again in glory with you!"
"Happy 107th Birthday, Daddy Richard. I still remember so much about you and miss you so much. I was with Jean on your birthday this year. She sends love also. You and Muh please look out for her and all of us from your holy place. God Bless. Love always, Reen & Leon"
"To the family:
“There is an appointed time for everything, A time for every activity under the heavens: A time for birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what was planted; A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up; A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to wail and a time to dance; A time to throw stones away and a time to gather stones together; A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away; A time to rip apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.” - Ecclesiates 3:1-8.
May you have more times of "healing", "laughing", "dancing", and "loving" than “weeping” and “wailing” with each passing year; and may cherished memories keep Mr. Richard forever alive in your hearts.
One day very soon, you will experience a time of perfect happiness and everlasting peace as you welcome him back to life!...... "When he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: ‘Lazʹa·rus, come out!’ The man who had been dead came out…Jesus said to them: ‘Free him and let him go’’”.....John 11: 43, 44. May you be comforted by these words from the holy scriptures."
"To the family and friends, the sting of death touches the very core of our hearts and emotions. As you reflect on the life and passing of your dear loved one, may you find peace in knowing that Our Creator can be a source of hope and comfort to all during times of grief. He also promises a hope for those sleeping in death - John 5: 28, 29; and even death itself He will destroy! 1 Corinthians 15:26 promises, "As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing". I am very sorry for your loss."
"The good in a man is not defined by his words but his deeds. There aren't many men I have known that labored his entire life with the goal of doing good. He knew the good life and he lived it. I carry parts of him with me everyday of my life."
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY GRANDADDY!!!!! I still replay the beloved memory in my head of how all of us kids would gather at your feet as you would bring out the STEVE ERKEL ACCORDIAN and play song after song! and as you would play I remember that your eyes would glisten and your teeth would shine because you were getting a kick out of WATCHING US be so enthused! I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU! THANKS FOR IMPARTING BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES IN MY LIFE AND I WILL NEVER FORGET!"
"It's such an honor to come from such a rich heritage, and to also be given the privilege to carry his name. A true proverbs 22:1 man"
