    Prayers for Carolyn and Jimmy as I cannot even begin to imagine how hard this is. Richey is with Jimbo now and Jeff, I m sure they are giving the angels a run for thier money though 🙂 I can see Richey now, giving them a hard time with that smile of his and his usual wit. He will be missed. Love you Richey

    May the family find peace and comfort in knowing that your dear Richard is now simply sleeping, as was Lazarus until Jesus went to “awaken,” or resurrect him. (John 11:11, 43) “All” in the grave will one day be awakened or resurrected when they hear Jesus voice to come out. (John 5:28, 29) And then, “the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26; Psalm 37:29) Take care Neal family and please accept my sincerest condolences.
