I love you dad! You were the best and I think about you all the time!
Richard Pierce Haynes: You blazed new trails thru Agali land, Planting trees and flowers in her sugar sand. You transformed pasture into gardens grand. Brilliant colors blooming all year 'round, Bulbs bursting thru the lively ground. Here a tranquil setting is easily found. Thank-you for your gifts to this world, and for being a truly tremendous friend.
Peace and comfort to his family and friends. Richard was a joy to know, a man of deep thought and deep humanity. His was a life well lived. Agali is his legacy, and to roam its grounds is to commune with his spirit. R.I.P., my friend.
Our thoughts are with you, Doc was a kind soul and generous gardener. We are thankful for having known him.

Dear Haynes Family: Your dad was not just 10 years ahead of he curve he was 30 years ahead of his time! Richard's role in creating the agriculture and human values journal created a mini-revolution that changed millions of lives. He got people thinking and set a fire in peoples brain that changed careers, teaching, and departments. His kindness to young faculty--encouraging young faculty to do simple things like change their curricula or to interview experts on film--were simple things that worked. He led from behind--pushing others to think differently. In terms of impact Richard was one of the people who left a lasting and very very very permanent mark on the University of Florida and indeed the national discourage on agriculture and human values.
My sincere condolences to the Haynes family for their loss and may the "Hearer of prayer" (Psalms 65:2)comfort and sustain you and prove to be a real strengthening aid to you during this time of sorrow.
Erica and family-thinking of you during this time. Keeping you all in my prayers.God bless.
