Many years and many miles separate you and I from the days we shared in the sun. Good night dancing prince.

In Honor of one of The Sweetest & Dearest Spirits who ever visited us at Dollywood!

I Thank God for your loving Presence..... and though we will miss you in...

To The Pingley family & Thomas,
My deepest sympathy to all of you on the loss of Richard. Though our communication through the years was sporadic, I have and always will carry happy and beautiful memories of our young years. May you find some peace in knowing he is with his loving mother and beloved pet. (Boo Boo)
