  1. I met Brother and Sister Richardson in the mid 80s as we were there for the New Year Eve revival. Boy did we have church, They fed us well. We were there several times thru the years. They even put us up when I came to town for a funeral. Due to a stroke I am unable to attend, sure wished I could. He was a good man, I have great memories of him and Soul’s Harbor Church.

  2. I knew Freddie most of my life. He would preach revivals for my brother Elton around the Little Rock, Arkansas area. He would stay at our home during these times. In 1976 DiAnn and I were the associate pastors of a church in Little Rock…Freddie and Edna came for a revival and they stayed with us. We had such a great time together. So many memories…but what I remember so vividly is his prayer life. Getting up early in the morning, walking to the church to pray. We are going to miss him. Condolences to his family. With Love, Glenn & DiAnn Cole

  3. I have so many fond memories of brother Richardson. I cleaned the church for Brother and Sister Richardson he would sneak up on me and scare me. That is one of many fond memories I have of him he is definitely going to be missed by many people. He has touched so many peoples lives, and he has been a blessing to me until we meet again, my beloved pastor and friend.

  4. What a wonderful man of God I am so honored that I got to meet him and got to sit under his ministry for a while I learned a lot he will be dearly missed, but I know he is shouting in heaven in the streets of glory. I love you, Pastor Richardson, you were the best, ❤️❤️❤️❤️
