Richard was always nice to us. He welcomed us when we bought, built and started living on the property across the street from him. We bought family property and he welcomed us like one of the family, even though we were strangers and yankees. I will surely miss walking over and talking with him under the wood shed. We will surely miss him, RIP “Pops”. I know you will still be keeping a eye on who drives down my driveway.
