I just wanted to say that I am truly sorry that you all have to go through this.. I know I may not have had the pleasure of meeting him much less all of you in person, but the past 10 years that you guys have been in my life I have grown to feel like you guys are my family. I know this is not easy, but remember he will Always be with you guys, and he is not suffering anymore. He is in a better place and think one of these days he will be with you all again. He isn't truly dead, his body might not be here but he is here everyday with you guys. Love you all, FLY HIGH Richard and Rest Easy!
