We think about you always,
we talk about you still,
you have never been forgotten, Dad
and you never will.
We hold you close within our hearts,
and there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives
until we meet again.

Richard was a wonderful friend and partner to my family as we traveled the world of dialysis together. He was always cheerful each and every time we saw him. We are grateful that God chose to allow him to be a part of our lives. He will surely be missed. From the Wheatfall Family

I was saddened hear of the passing of yet another great man but it warms my knowing that Richard and my dad will be up there together, maybe shooting pool :) All my love and prayers go out to you Yumiko, Jen, Joey and Tiff.

To the best dad in the whole world. We were truly blessed to have you as our dad. Thank you for everything that you've done for me throughout my entire life. You truly took great care of your family and I could not have asked for anything more. I will miss you dearly everyday of my life and will cherish every single memory of you and the good times we had. I will also miss your sense of humor. Life is going to be SO hard, and will never be the same without you, but I look forward to the day I will see you again...I love you Dad with all my heart!! <3
