"Richard, it's been 5 years now since we lost you.  I played Willowbrook yesterday and I was thinking how you would have been right there with me.  I miss playing golf with you, listening to your big ole laugh, seeing your big smile  and watching the joy on your face as you played with my kids.  Everyone who knew you misses you terribly.  You lived a joyful life and that joy was infectious.  I love you.  See you on the other side someday."

"Two years ago and I think my heart hurts more now than it did then.  My heart is still shattered into pieces.  I just want to rewind to years ago when things were the way they should be.  I love you so much. xoxo"

"Jan. 5, 2014 - Today would have been your 61st birthday.  We had a great time golfing again.  Tucker, Greg, Aaron, Jeff, and Mike joined us today at Cottonwood, along with Tucker's friend, Joey, and Me, Mom, Julie, Landon, Bryan, and Angie.  There's still an emptiness in my heart that no one can fill.  I miss you."

"Richard, it's been a year now since we lost you and we miss you very much.  I miss the fun times we had and the laughs we shared.  We are all doing better, but we'll never stop missing you.  A part of us is missing without you.  You lived life happily and you made people happy with your loving nature and positive attitude.  We love you."

"Since the day I met Richard he was unforgettable and impossible to dislike. In one word FUN. He was the eternal optimist. He had a smile or a word of encouragement for anyone. He would shine in a room of the wealthy and salute beers with the hard working. His voice is forever in my heart. The world needs more people like him."

It's been almost 8 months and my heart is still hurting SO much.  I miss you.  I want you to here.  I feel like our circle of 12 is now just 11 and it's like losing an arm or something.  I can't function the way I used to .  I can't look at life the way I used to.  Come back. :("
