First of all I am so sorry for your loss. Richard was a very kind and loving person. He was very good to my Mom when they were together. And to us as well. My husband and I were in Las Vegas and stayed with him a few years ago. He will be missed dearly. God Bless him! I only wish I would've seen him more recently!
