Our hearts go out to the family of Richard. May God bless the family with the strength to make it through these days as they morn. God blessed Richard with an amazing talent for photography which enabled him to capture those special moments in time leaving photographic memories for them to share and remember Richard. We were only blessed with a few opportunities to interact with Richard but each of them were special moments to see what a positive, happy, loving and caring person he was.
