    I am so sorry and shocked to hear of Richard’s passing. He was such a sweet and fun guy. I worked with him for years at Maritz. My fondest memory of Richard was of dancing with him after a company picnic, and I remember being impressed at his abilities. I hadn’t seen or heard from Richard in a few years, but I thought of him very often and will continue to remember him with great affection. My deep condolences go out to his family and friends.

    I am devastated to learn of Richard’s death. We have been friends for over 30 years and I will miss him terribly. He slipped from this life with no warning to me. He was in great spirits at Christmas time and was feeling better than he had in months. We talked often and we shared so much through the years. I know he is at peace now and that is what he was ultimately looking for. Rest my friend Richard. Your friends and family understand.

    Pete, I’ve thought of you and Richard often over the years, after Meridian. He was a thorough and meticulous person, and a funny, kind man. His passing saddens me. Good journey, Richard.
