May you find comfort knowing what a wonderful brother/son Richard was to all of us. He was the kindest man you'll ever find on earth. It's been my pleasure to have his friendship many years on the bus. Happy to know he isn't in pain anymore but his presence will be missed by many. Love to you all.

Richard was a bright light in my life. He believed in me more than I did and it was so special to share small victories with him. He was one of the Good Ones.
