Richard and Elaine are so special to me. God has blessed me with knowing them for almost 20 years now. God brought them into my life at a very special time. I was new on the mission field and needed godly wisdom and support. My earthly father loved me very much, but he was not strong in spiritual things, so my Heavenly Father blessed me with Richard. I feel with my whole heart that he was my second father. Thank you Elaine, Rick, Gary and Connie for sharing him with me. I was so amazed that he would care for me, but he did - a real example of God's agape love. He didn't only care about me in words, but with all he had and all he could do. He prayed for me. He prayed with me. He counseled me with such wise advice - some of which I didn't always want to hear, but always needed. He brightened my day with laughter. He was so positive. He was always witnessing to those around him about the love of God. He had his flaws, but I can't think what one of them might have been.

I will miss him deeply, but am looking forward to hearing one of his jokes when I see him again in heaven.

A beautiful poem by my dear friend, Tina Clary, says it well:

Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal
Love leaves sweet memories that no one can steal

Heartache and sorrow we often meet
But everything changes at Jesus' feet.

I look forward to seeing you, Richard, at Jesus' feet!

Elaine - We were so very sorry to learn of Richards passing. However, we rejoice knowing that he has truly received a promotion. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. We appreciated so much all that Richard and you did for our church, Gilliam Springs, in Arab, AL. We so much enjoyed our sweet time of fellowship with you both during the Pastor's Conferences in years gone by. God Bless you.

To the entire Gills Family,

Don and I are sorry to hear of your loss. Mr. Gills profesional mild mannered approach to day to day business will always be one of our early memories of the world of Duval Container. Mr. Gills was a wonderful associate of our father, Joe P. Safer. Don and I saw many similarities in their shared concern for others and their always trying to do what was right.
We know your loss is difficult but we hope the long list of good deeds accomplished will lessen your family's pain.

Elaine,
Uncle Richard was family, but also a friend. Spencer loved him so much. we all did. He was a man of knowledge, but full of love. We love you guys so much and miss all terrible. Spencer loved his "best friend" going back to the family reunion 8 years ago. Those two were instant buddies. Uncle Richard put smiles on many faces. The Lord has accepted another angel in Heaven. May your family find comfort in knowing that he is smiling down on us all with love. We love you Elaine. Love always, Kevin, Lisa & Spencer Collins

Elaine, I'm so sorry he's gone but so glad you had so many good years with him. I know you miss him and it's okay to cry. Heaven's gain is your loss--that's why it's okay to cry--but also, your loss is heaven's gain, so you can smile through the tears.

I'll see you soon "Monique," but God is always with you.

Love from "Unique" Mel.
