Kristin and family, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. Thinking of you all.

I met him once as an adult and wow. His mind! Not spewing rhetoric! Ideas, thought provoking questions, life experience - I could have listened to him for hour on end. A remarkable human being.

Kathy has been a BF since elementary school. We shared parents, I don't when we started ...probably immediately. So, when I announced my 1st wedding, Richard offered to take my wedding pictures. One of the many photos he took that day is attached. He was such a hipster in the 70's. I truly believe all those movies I see about the 70's lifesyyle was Richard's life. No idea if that's true, but I always aspired 'to be cool like Richard'. He was truly a gifted photographer and what a treat to see that talent passed down to his granddaughters. This family is family to me...may God wrap his arms around each and everyone of you in this time of grief.
