We send our love to our Mother & siblings, nieces & nephews, friends & everyone who knew Richard; we will all miss our Father, who was friendly and feisty, loving and lively , generous and genteel. As he can now navigate around heaven without constraint, we rejoice. But we'll all miss him beyond what further words can express.
Kim & Paul
