This was a great loss to everyone who know him. Reading about him clearly gives you an idea of how humble and god fearing Richard's were. May god bless their soul.

Did you know Richard? If so, which one... Jr. or Sr.? I would like to maybe ask you a few questions if you would write me at the address below. Richard (the father) was my wife's great-uncle. We did not know him so I would like to ask a little about him.
