Although we lived miles apart, whenever we had an opportunity to visit- we always cherished our times together. Rich had such a loving and caring personality - always concerned for everyone's happiness. He would tell stories, make us laugh, and was game for anything we wanted to do. Rich made a front porch bench for me on one of their visits to Alabama. I didn't ask - he just thought a beautiful bench by my front door would look good. So we hauled off to Lowe's, bought the supplies and my front porch bench was made with loving and caring hands. Rich was a very talented and creative person. I still have that bench standing proudly by my front door today. It was made many years ago. Neighbors come to sit on it when visiting, our precious packages are dropped off in when delivered, I sit on it and watch the Cardinals in my big Birch tree. I sit on it when waiting for guests to arrive when the weather is nice. That bench sits proudly by my front door- and is a reminder to me always of Rich's loving and generous spirit. Don and I adored and loved you.
