Condolence: Dear Sweet Family of Richie, I want to let you know how much Richie meant to me. Richie was the inspiration which led to my going back to college and going into teaching. Watching him throughout his life and the love and tender care he received from his loving parents and siblings was truly inspirational. I know that he made me a better person, a person who would come to know more about special needs of children, and consequently a better teacher in the classroom with children who required "more" sometimes. The husbands and wives of his siblings were incredible. They would take over responsibilities of Richie's care and never complain. They treated him with respect and such love! I will always remember all of you for your truly unconditional love. Richie is in the arms of Jesus and can you imagine how happy Melba and Lec doak are to see him again. I can only imagine, yes, Richie is dancing for Jesus and in awe standing before Him, complete and whole before our Lord. Blessings and love to each member of Richie's family. You are incredible human beings, each one of you. Love, Barbara and Hoppy

Condolence: Thinking of my cousins in their time of sadness and loss of Rich. When I think of him, I remember the times when we were children, I would be visiting Uncle Lec and Aunt Melba with Mom and Dad in Paden City. Rich would spot me very soon after arriving and want to flip the back of my long hair, how he always wanted to listen to the Chipmunks album and stayed consistent till someone started the record player and then his love for Aunt Melba’s home made pies! He is now at peace and calm with his Mom and Dad!
