    Oh my dear brother- thank you for saving me from drowning at that lake when I was 5! Thank you for the hundreds of thousands of hours we spent on the phone talking about everything in life. We always had a special bond. I could count on you for guidance anytime of the day or night. Although we promised to see each other the last time we were together and we expressed how much we loved and cared for each other, the next time we see each other will be at a large party in heaven with momma and daddy. Until then Dickie, I will think of you all the time!

    I love you so very much,

    So, so sorry to hear of Richards passing. Difficult to accept. Worked with for over 20 years. He was not only my supervisor but my friend.
