Condolence & Memory Journal


God saw you were getting tired, And a cure was not to be,
So he put his arms around you, And whispered, "Come to Me."
With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
So very sorry for you loss Sue and family he was a very well loved man and will be missed by many we miss you Richard RIP

Kathy and I send our heartfelt condolences to Sue and all of Richard's family. We will miss him tremendously at our Windward Knoll park, especially his festive karaoke, his love for our breakfasts and the joy he took in sharing the spotlight with Randy. His love and compassion for cats and kids showed how huge his heart was and his passing leaves a hole in ours. Semper Fi, my friend, until we meet again.

To my Friend, My Brother, My Comrade....
Your passing has mad me very sad....
Who will I talk to everyday on the phone?....
Your passing will leave me feeling alone...
We had good times together, the things We did...
Singing Karaoke like a couple of kids....
I will miss you my Friend, I surely will....
But We will meet again, when I climb that hill....
So until the day, I get to that gate...
I expect You and Jim to be there....
And don't be late.......Mike
