    I have lost a wonderful and loving Stepdad. He loved my mom (and My brothers,Allen and Dale) with all of his heart. I said a prayer after I heard about it to my daddy,Walter Stevens about Richard heading his way and to be there at the Golden gate to lead him in. Both loved mom very much. I loved Richard for loving my mother. He is going to be missed by all of us. Rest in piece my fellow military veteran. I know we all have some wonderful Guardian Angels, a new one has joined.

    I have lost a very dear friend. Communities and organizations have lost a tireless volunteer. What a terrific guy he was! He always had a friendly word or a joke for you.
    He will be greatly missed. Suzy and I send our heartfelt condolences to Martha.
