Mrs. Flo and your families, my deepest sympathy and condolences. Richard was a very good man and I have known him for many years. Will miss seeing him, sitting across the table enjoying Thursday afternoons. God bless.

My heart is so heavy with the loss of my friend and brother Richard. The world is a worse place without him in it and there will be no one like him ever. Flo we love you so much and you will always be family to us. I know Richard being gone is such a wound to your heart. We all are selfish and want him with us. I can't even handle thinking of sitting under the carport without Richard there with us. However, he is breathing without difficulty and young again. We will see him again one day and it will be glorious. God bless you all.
