    Rick Old Friend we have walked many a mile together and saw some wonderful sights. We have agreed to disagree and moved on in our flights. Through many late night discussions we have solved the worlds problems and had some good laughs. Now you travel to a far far better place and I must wait. But keep your light bright my friend and I will join you when I have reached my end. I Love you Brother and I will never know another as I have known you. Love and Cheers my friend

    It was a shock to read this, and just by chance, as I’m not in Frankfort any more. I remember hanging out with Richard at Grandma Nettie’s house when I was visiting with my dad, Frank. Aunt Reva, you and your family have my deepest condolences. Cheri Best Hudgins
