Richard was at Sunrise with my late husband. I spent many hours just talking to Richard - and I liked him immensely. Brilliant guy and he was so kind to my husband. May he rest in peace with the angels.

When we were little, there were times your Dad terrified me, but knew he was stern at times because he loved us so much. Such an accomplished man, who would do everything for family. Love and light. May your memories bring you peace. All my love, Jackie
