Richard was my first cousin. He was a wonderful father and husband. He was wonderful grandfather. Richard and I organized many family reunions together. I will miss his weekly phone calls. I am so heartbroken and I know that he is with our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. We will always cherish his memory. My thoughts and prayers go to his family, Anita and Lesli. R.I.P my cousin I love you.
Rest in Peace Cousin Richard. My condolences to Anita, Leslie, and the rest of his family and friends. I will always cherish the wonderful memories that I have of Richard. The reunions and parties that we attended. He was always there to help people in need. He was not only a cousin, but also a friend.
