    Richard was one of the kindest people I have ever know. He loved his kids so much. Anytime I would see him at the grocery store or gas station, he always talked about his kids and Miriam. He was such a kind hearted person and it was so good to see him so happy. He will be missed and I know he was loved by many. I will keep you all in my prayers. Heaven gained a good one.
