Can't believe it had been this long since you had to leave us . I am not too far behind you just living on borrowed time
Hope we both was good enough to meet again in heaven .

You have inspired me to forever be a happy man, and to try to make those around me happy. Your smile is just that to me, and it is an image in my mind that will never be forgotten. I wish I could have told you how much you have influenced my life and how much of a father you were to me. You were a inspiration to me in many ways, and I wish I had spent more time with you, as everyone else does. You are a great man, father, grandfather and beautiful heart. I will forever feel you in my life and consider you a father. Thank you for the time you shared with me and the family I will forever love. I love you and miss you terribly.

Rich, we have missed you every day down at the gym. It was always a little brighter, a little more fun when you were there. Thank you for sharing those old car talks with me . I am so sorry I missed the funeral, but I send prayers to your family, if you see my Dad up in Heaven have a car chat with him for me!

This does not even seem real. You were with us in full force only a few months ago and now you belong to Heaven. I don't know if I even have the words to express such a loss for there is no one who can compare to you. I am so grateful to have all our pictures and videos so your beautiful little grandchildren may understand just how much their Pepaw loved them. You have taught me so much and I will never stop being grateful for everything you have ever given me and continue to do even after your life here has ended. You will be forever in my heart. I already miss you so much, Dad. I love you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

When I think of you I will see us dancing. That was what we did the last time I saw you. You accomplished a lot of good things in your lifetime that brought you happiness. You will be missed by many Richard. Rest in Peace

Richard, This is my brother and my friend. Though we lay him to rest, for me it's not the end. For in my heart and mind you shall always be. Remembering things we did together and things that now won't be. With much sadness we let you go. You are in a better place, this we know. For Jesus is our Savior, Lord, and King. With his Love he will get us through this thing. You went so fast, how could we know. We needed one more hug before you go. I will kiss your forehead with a tear in my eye. Then let you go, but not say goodbye. Love, Ed
