My Father's Inspiration
Such an excellent example, my father he was to me -
Like his ever loving presence, I continually strive to be.
Dad was always positive, no matter what the circumstance -
He always extended a helping hand, whenever he had the chance.
He was happy go lucky & funny, but there so was much more -
He was sensitive & compassionate, even with all the physical pain he bore.
My father taught me many lessons, encompassing all aspects of

Mary, Cherie' & Richard, I'm so sorry for your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of Richard. He was, without a doubt, the best "boss" in the world. The store was never the same without him there. He loved his family so much. We had so much fun swapping hunting stories. He was a man of God and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. My prayers are with you all during these difficult days ahead. My love to all, Mary

I am thankful that I had the opportunity to visit with Richard at our 50th class reunion. He was the same dear person he was in high school. Richard was one of my "favorite classmates". He always brought a smile. Once again God has shown me that life is precious and fleeting.
Dear Father, I ask that you surround this family with your love and mercy. May they feel your presence at this time, and in the days to come. AMEN

Reconnected with Richard and met Mary for the first time at the Friday night dinner before the Saturday reunion event. Really enjoyed getting to know Richard even better than high school. Thinking back to our discussion that short 2-3 hours sitting beside Richard on Friday night, I know he is celebrating with Jesus and because of his testimony many others from his circle of family, friends and acquaintences will join him later in the Celebration.

Wish we were able to be there. Richard and Precious will be missed at the gunstore. He always spoke so fondly of his wife. And told such sweet stories of when they first met and married. He had just told of his mother on law and how he now missed her. They must be having quite the reunion. With all our Love. Justin and Meredith
