Richard will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Kindness, humor and a sharing spirit was displayed everywhere he went. I will miss our conversations while sitting and watching him cook delicious meals. He could have given Wolfgang Puck a run for his money. Rest in peace Richard, until that great getting up morning.
