I am sorry for your loss. Would any of the survivors know a Richard L Harper who would be approximately 88 years old? Dick and I were in the army together stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. We were good buddies, but lost track of one and other over the years.

So sorry for your loss. Your family are thoughts and prayers. I stopped by but didn't know who to talk to with so many people. Richard was so loved!

I remember when you came home from the hospital. Your mom and sisters were so happy to have you join their unity. You had character from the day you were born. "I truly believe that you were always a step ahead of your actual age." Just smart from the moment you put your first little words together." I will never forget when your granny "Diane" told me you had saved all of your allowance money to buy your mommy a gift. You could not have been older than 7 or 8 at the time. This was proof that you were born to be a leader and a great money manager. You have blossomed since you've been on this earth, and I expect nothing different of you through your transition up to the "Higher Power!" Such a loving young man, and will truly be missed by all! We love you little "Dookie" and one thing for sure about memories; "They can NEVER be taken away" Your soul will continue to warm our hearts!

He was probably the most happiest person you would ever meet . He didn't deserve this at all because he really had big things come for him in his life . He had the biggest and brightest smile nobody could ever replace . i loved when he would check up on me all the time to see how me and my sister was doing , my sister and him was very close and she is having a very hard . But really am going to miss him checking up on me and seeing if i needed a ride any where or if i needed anything ! but i just want to thank him for always being here for me and always making me so happy ! Everybody loved dookie because he just had this big heart and the best personality . I Love you so much dookie , and get your rest !
