I remember seeing Richard at the Texarkana College Pinkerton Center pool. Always a kind word, and he would swim anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour. But oh no, he wasn't done, and he would get in the sauna and stay another 15 or 20 minutes. When my family would visit the "Cafeteria", when he saw us, he always spoke, always smiled, always checked to make sure everything was tasteful and up to his standards. He will be missed. To the Lawrence family, we give you strength and many prayers...he was a great man.....Milam, Cindy, and Chelsea Albright

So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed early morning walks when Richard was walking with his beloved dogs.

Richard was one of the best bosses I ever had, his down to earth attitude willingness to teach his employees the best hands on way made him a amazing boss. I will never forget him and I'm very thankful for the time I knew him. Rest easy Richard!!

Lindy, Bryce, and Sharon,

I am so sorry to hear the news about Richard. The last time I saw him was about two or three years ago when I was visiting my sister in Texarkana, and I stopped to eat at the cafeteria. Whenever I did so, I would see Richard or you, Bryce, and I would catch up on local news. My earliest memory of Richard was when he was a little boy with his wagon out in

So sorry to hear of this sad news of Richard's passing. He introduced me to those peppers at Bryce's, the last item on the buffet. I ate two last Monday. Richard knew and Bryce knows what they and their family business have meant to me since I first met all in 1999. Bryce's afforded me a refuge for good food, good conversation, and a place I called my second office. I will miss Richard greeting me behind the buffet line,
