To Richard's family: he loved you all and cherished time with you so very much. In his last days, he told me that he knew he could not be with you on Thanksgiving and I could see the grief and longing in his eyes. Yall were in his sweet, kind heart so deeply and gave him so much comfort. There are few people that I have had the honor and privilege to know who were so purely and sincerely as kind as Richard. We shared a lot about cooking and that's how he started almost every conversation with me, "what you got cooking today?" He told me so much about his childhood and the way his mom cooked a lot like I do with little measuring but with "flicks of the wrist" when adding seasoning. He remembered not only the events from back then but he remembered feelings and emotions in a way many people don't. He spoke so warmly and caringly about his former co-workers and his fellow Lions and especially about you, his precious family. He was unashamed of expressing his deepest sentiments. He kept a lighthearted, joking spirit even in the roughest times. He would say the silliest thing or tease me to get my mind off of my troubles and he knew exactly how to make me laugh. I feel so very fortunate to have known him and to have had a small place in his very big and loving heart. He will live on in my heart and in my fondest thoughts forever. God bless.
