    Richard and I got very close this last 20 year he was a cousin and a friend. I believe that he would like everyone he knew and LOVE to learn this lesson about our Lord. Let us ask Jesus for nothing but peace and infinite LOVE. Let us work, for God’s love alone with the one purpose of pleasing Him, our Source of life and center of our being. To instill in the hearts of all human beings the wisdom of peace, the strength of justice and the joy of fellowship. I believe this was Richard prayer for us all that know and love him.

    Your LOVING cousin,

    Richard was a caring father and a religious man. He had read the Bible 24 times and was involved in church. He prayed intently for others in need. I also knew him as a race fan and sheepshead player. He really did love being a musician and sharing his talent with others.

    Friend and cousin,
