**I can say that Richard was a close friend who I could always talk too, we would share stories of our time in the service and life issues. We would spend most everyday talking or riding on my daily runs at work. Most people thought he was a government employee because we were always together. I am going to miss my buddy for now, but I take great delight in knowing that we will meet again as children of God.**
