I am so sorry for your loss, I knew Richard briefly via his son Jeff. He has raised a good son. I have met Richard on a few ocasions and he was a good man. A father is honored by his children and Richard had many reasons to feel proud. Jeff is a good and Honorable man. My deepest heart felt sympathy to you all. God Bless.
