Richard, I didnt know you personally however I did know your daughter Wendy since Jr High school. Because of Facebook and Wendy I do feel like I knew you enough. The love that you had for Carol and all the kids was shining within you at all times. You could see the love you had for all of them. What a remarkable man you are. With that I repeat MAN! Takes a special man to walk in and do what you did and do it GREAT! I know you are in your kids because you raised them and your love continues to be passed down. To Carol- Im so sorry for your loss. I will MISS all your sweet fun loving dancing videos share by Wendy. Always put a smile on my face. Wendy Im so thankful you had such a loving caring father that did your family right. I know you will carry him in your heart forever. Love to all, Bobbie Harris
