The world lost a good, loving, and caring man, but heaven got him. I had the honour of meeting Richard, although only briefly but I will always remember him as a gentle, caring and kind man who loved his family dearly and was always ready to lend a helping hand and offer his friendship without hesitation. Until we meet again. Marisa Isabel Castillo Petruza Toronto, Ontario
