    Kelly my heart goes out to you. Richard was lots of fun at work, I will miss his humor. I always felt close to Richard because of the military, since he was stationed very close to my home. You always have this bond with military people, also a higher level of respect. My husband and I would like to give you our deepest sympathy to you and family.
