Richard was such a kind and caring person and did not speak bad of anyone. In my last visit right after Christmas, we talked about what things would be like in heaven and how much better off we would be. May God continue to bless you and your family.

In my heart,I will remember his musical legacy, spirit, and talents he shared with us, with his guitar playing. May God comfort you all.

May God bless and comfort you during this difficult time. Mickey and I were blessed to meet and play music together with Richard and Pastor Ken Mann at Mt. Carmel Church. Whenever I turn around from the piano bench and look at the corner where Richard played his guitar, I will smile and remember his talent and how he played with such a fun and God loving spirit.
