    Richard’s presence will be missed in many places, but the Frankfort Rotary Club will miss his weekly welcome at the sign in table. Richard was always willing to speak the truth and ask questions if he did not know. Our community will miss Richard as we are a little better because of the good and kind man he was. While we are saddened by his passing, we rejoice in his home in Heaven. Much love to Nancy, Galen, and family.

    Dad, I miss you a lot. I truly miss being able to talk to you on the phone. It was so awesome to receive a call from Daddy, yes you are forever my Daddy. You made me happy when you called me. I enjoyed sharing all my little LV finds from ME. Nancy you were a wonderful wife to my father because of you I believe we had Dad as long as we did. I thank you for taking care of Dad and being in his life. I love you Nancy and I miss all my brothers and family. Someone told me that through Death is HEALING. May God and our love ones in heaven continue to watch over us and protect us.
