Even though we grieve for ourselves, we rejoice in knowing where he is today: with his Savior, running and dancing, breathing easily with great big gulps of air, with no more gasping of coughing. He’s shuffling the cards and challenging a new bunch of friends to a game of cribbage.

The family would like to thank all of Richard’s caregivers; Dr. Padmanabhan, Dr. Sekhon, the Cancer Center and the staff of Hinds Hospice. Richard appreciated all you did for him, and so do we.
