Dear Family of Richard,
Our family was very blessed by his wonderful friendship for the past 15 years or more. We sold his wonderful wood sculptures and bowls in our shop at Art Services in Boulder Creek and enjoyed several visits a week from Richard. He was always concerned for our welfare and constantly sharing information he had heard or read that he thought we might like to know about. He cared for our whole family and and was like a father/grandfather to us all. His will be missed. We just wanted you to know how much we appreciated him. The Lanctot Family
