Richard's beautiful smile will forever be in our hearts & minds and we think of him. No matter how sick he was he always had a smile that made us feel everything was going to be ok.We enjoyed family reunions discussing how & when we were going to move to Florida one day to escape the cold winters. He loved Florida and felt he lived in paradise, now he is at peace & free of illness living in Heavenly Paradise in Gods loving arms. God Bless you & Janet

I didn't know Richard for long, but what I did know for certain is that you were both devoted to each other. A love and devotion that if shared by all, would change the world.
