I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Richard. So many memories of our days at Hoover. Dunno know all these years have passed. Thank the Lord he is resting in the arms of our Savior Jesus Christ now! Jeannie, praying for you and the family.
Hang in there. Isaiah 25:8 says, "He will swallow up death in victory, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces..."
God bless you all!

My condolences to Jeannie and Family. I worked with Richard for many years and rode to work with him for most of those years. He was a super guy and a really good friend. The world will be a sadder place without his smile and humor. Rest in Peace my friend.
