I am so sorry about Richard. We were out of town and I did not know about it until Yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. I did not know that Louise and Evelyn had passed away. (Mae's daughter.)

Skipper and family, We are so sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I enjoyed talking to him when I was younger and would see him when I worked in Atkins and then he became such a hit at Rural Retreat Middle School during their Veterans Day program. The staff and kids alike loved to see him come through the door.

Prayers and sympathy to his family.

I am so sorry to hear of Richard's passing, he was Ernie's first cousin and when we ran into him at Walmart he and Ernie would talk a long time.
