Richard was my supervisor in Fort Worth. He displayed a Christian attitude in & out of the office. We worshiped together briefly at First Baptist in Arlington. He was also a friend. Rest In Peace my friend. See you in heaven.

I am reminded of many memorable times with your dad when we taught Sunday School in the ninth grade. Then later we
served as deacons, played golf, and went to church camp. I enjoyed having lunch with him when he was in his second career.
We will miss him. Joe Myers
