I am so sorry for this family’s loss. I have always thought very highly of him and your family. I know that my sister(Sandy) and brother-in-law is welcoming him to heaven.
I just wanna say to family that I’m so sorry for your loss I met Mr Richard when I was with his daughter ,Amanda …..He was a great guy I actually got to work with him at the meat plant. ..He will be missed. .
Richard, you fought so hard but Jesus said “it’s time to rest now and time to come home” I know you are celebrating with Doug, Stanley and all the rest of our family and friends who went before you. You had already started planning your next vacation but the one you had in mind doesn’t compare to the place you are now. You loved and cared for your family fiercely. You were the best “fixit” person I knew. There wasn’t anything you couldn’t fix or repair.
You are missed so much already. And It’s not a goodbye but I’ll see you again some day.
I love you
