Not a day goes by without thinking about you Richard. I still struggle realizing you are gone. In my heart you are always there. In Peace.

Richard it's been a year and you remain in the thoughts and hearts of many. Today I will hoist a brew and think of you. I hope you came to know the peace of Christ and the enjoyment of eternal life.

Richard, you were a good friend and I came to appreciate the many ways in which we helped each other. You went away suddenly and I wasn't there to help you move(!) I trust that the memorial service will do justice to who you were. Rest in Peace. Jack Kennedy
