Praying that you'll sense Godís presence
In this time of grief
And feel Godís love surrounding you
And know His inner peace
For God cares so much for you
And wipes each tear you cry
You never need to feel alone
For Heíll never leave your side
Take Care,You & Richard will be remembered.

Many fond memories of Richard as we were growing up. He was the "oldest" cousin and spent much time with us when he lived in Lincoln. Loved is smile and his quiet nature! He loved to collect books and postcards of the Mitchell Corn Palace.

Sorry to hear about Cousin Richard's death. I remember all the fun we had at Memorial Day reunions at Lake Mitchell and Kay & Ed's garage in Mt. Vernon. One of the stories my mom told me about Richard when he was little was about his big brown eyes. People kept commenting on them until he finally put his hands over his eyes and wouldn't look at anybody. Miss him and the grandparents and all the aunts. uncles and cousins who went before him.
Love Nancy
