Dear Madeline and fam: The angels will be have the honor of receiving Richard's smile. We rarely saw him without it. His quiet good humor and steadfast faith will be remembered for a long time. Such a loss to us who are left behind. Thankfully he has left you with wonderful children to help and hold you at this time. And don't forget your friend are here too. Doug and Sharon
