"Some people walk in our lives for just a moment, but stay in our hearts forever."

And in our heart is exactly where Richard will forever be. To know him, was to love him. He was a loyal friend, devoted husband, proud father, and above all, he was the world's best "pop-pop". His love was unconditional and always without limits. Richard was someone who made you laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, and live life a little better. And better we are, because of him. With Richard's death, we lost a friend, a husband, a dad, and pop-pop.

"How lucky are we to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard?"

Please pray for Richard's eternal rest and joy in the Kingdom.
