Enter into His Glorious Presence, Richard. Sing of His wounderous work. We will miss your presence. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family tonight.
Be Blessed,

A great man. He'll be very much missed. We were very fortunate to have him as one of the founders of the Celtic Chorus.
Dianna Shipman, President
Celtic Chorus of Houston
I was very sad to hear of Richard's untimely death. I know he is now singing with the Heavenly choir. My prayers are for God's Grace and Peace to rest upon his family and many friends. He will be sorely missed.

Our prayers are with your family. We were just laughing with him on Sunday. He was a very dear friend of Debra, Vernon and Donna and the Griff's family. We will miss your friendship and generousity and smile.
