We was sorry to read about Richard your all in our thoughts and prayers. He was a great friend to me I was out in the garage today. And sitting at the door and thought of him always stopping to talk. I'll miss our porch and my front yard talks when he stopped by. He always said hi to Katie I went out this morning to turn around and he'd always call me if I didn't stop.

I did taxes for your parents for years and for Richard after Mavis passed away.
They were both very nice people and a pleasure to work with.
