  1. Richard and I worked together at the VA office for many years.
    Sincerest condolences to the Family.

  2. Richard and I worked together at the VA for many years and he was one of my dearest friends. He gave me a cookbook for my wedding which I still have and use today. Each time I use this cookbook I will think of his kindness and generosity. There are no words to describe the loss of this friend. To his family and friends “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp, because the dawn has come.

  3. David,
    I am so very to hear of your loss. I only met Richard once so did not have the pleasure of getting to know him. Please know many people are thinking of you and hope you are comforted by good friends and family. I’m glad Richard was in your life for all those years.
    All my best,

  4. To the Family, I am very sorry for your loss, and on behalf of the Stone Mountain Masonic Lodge, our condolences.

  5. I worked with Richard for many years at VA. He was a wonderful person that made me laugh many times. My prayers are with the family as you cope with his loss.
