Richard you always had a pleasant hello and a kind word. When you talked about gambling, your face would light up and you'd tell me how your luck was going and how much fun it was. Richard it was a pleasure to know you. Good luck in Heaven.

Richie was my cousin. When he lived in Detroit our families visited back and forth often. He was a wonderful person and I looked forward to his Christmas cards every year. I am so glad he had Jean to spend time with over the years.
