A Letter from Richard as he watches from above…
I’m writing this from Heaven Where I dwell with God above. A place where there is no more tears and sadness, just eternal love.
When you are walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind, just know
I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
When you feel that gentle breeze or the wind upon your face, that is me giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
When it’s time for you to go from that body to be free, remember you’re not going, your simply coming here to me.
We invite you to join us for the Celebration of the Life of a Great man & Father.
The outpouring of love and admiration for him over the past week has been absolutely inspiring and heart-warming.
On behalf of my mother Mary, my brother Brandon, and our spouses, who were just as much Dad’s children and who he loved dearly, Mary’s sisters, and everyone who has opened their hearts and helped during this time of despair, we thank you and we welcome you to our Celebration of Life, Family, Friendship and Faith.
On Friday, September 18th at 5:00 pm we will honor, respect and remember a Good man who has touched and enriched all of our lives in so many different ways, I want try to put everyone, including myself at ease here.
Richard did not want this to be a sad day in our lives. He really didn’t. He told me so a couple of times and asked me to make sure let all of you know that.
So please, for him…for Mary and for all of us…let’s take a moment to shift our thoughts from how much we’ll miss him to one of your own many funny, joking, laughing, happy and comical times that you shared with him. ..and there were many for all of us. So briefly…relive it…enjoy it and SMILE!
Rejoice in remembering the good times and the moments of happiness we have all shared with Richard.
Richard was a man of compassion and generosity. It is an honor to have known him, to have shared stories and dreams. I hope you will always think of him smiling as I will no matter how hard it may seem.
In Richard there was no equal, he was in a class all his own and because of the love he gave me I will never feel alone.
In closing I would like to leave you with a prayer;
Dear God, I gratefully thank you for giving me my dad.
You must really love me because you gave me the very best you had.
Watch over him and bless him lord, keep him in your care.
May you bless him with our love for him in this my humble prayer.
Rick is my brother. I’ll miss him always . God bless you brother. Love always T ( Reese). Lawrence
