The family wants you to remember that Richard was a man that lived his life not with many words, but with actions. He showed the people in his life that he loved them. He would give you the shirt off his back and cook you a meal, even give you his last two dollars. As we remember the life that he lived remember that love isn’t love until it’s given away.
