My fondest memory of my cousin Richard is that he always wore a smile, always had a pleasant word to say, most often had a joke to tell and held a twinkle in his eye. He was kind and gentle and will be greatly missed.

Such a class act. I wish I could shake your hand one last time Richard. We love you.

I met "Link" in 1980 through mutual friend "Gary K." Link, always a gentleman, always fun to be with and always thoughtful. My heart goes out to his frends and family

My thoughts are with Richard and his family and those who knew him. I met him in South Florida in the early 90's and ever since, we developed a close friendship throughout the years--there were periods when we saw each other weekly, or bi-weekly and in recent months, once a month when I traveled to his home some 2.5 hours away. I recall the interesting conversations we had, along with the laughs. It will be different going down to see family and friends each month, without stopping by his home...it will take some getting used to. I will try to listen to Shakira in honor of him, more often--He so loved her! :) lol
