Diane and Family, We have just learned of Richard's passing. We are deeply saddened. Even though we have lived thousands of miles apart, most of our adult lives, you and Richard have been important parts of our lives. We fondly remember all the good times we shared with you even before Richard entered the picture of our lives. Know that you and your family are in our prayers and thoughts. Even though he will be greatly missed, we can find comfort and rest, knowing that he is now in the Loving Arms of our Lord and Savior. His body is whole and perfect, and he is basking in the Glory of our God. May God Bless and comfort you, with His Loving mercy, grace and peace. In His service, together, Jack and Teresa Rader

Rest in peace Richard you will be missed by all. I am so glad that I got to see him and talk to him on face time and to say good bye to him. Much love and God bless all.

Not a moment has passed since we saw you take your last earthly breath, that I don't think to myself, "This can't be real." All the memories of vacations, car shows, card games, camping trips, silly songs, holidays, and so much more come flooding back, and I wish we could've had one more. I can't imagine the heartache that Diane, Nikki, April, Davy, and Gracie are feeling. It's so hard to rejoice in your homegoing when we miss you so much. I have to remind myself that the sorrow is only temporary and the joy in Jesus Christ is eternal. Save a place for me and the rest of the family, we'll be there soon.
