Richard was truly one of the kindest, sweetest men I have ever met. It was my privilege to have known him as a volunteer at WARM while I served as pantry coordinator. We also bonded over our love of cats. His warmth and servant’s heart blessed all of us. I am so saddened for your family and this great loss. My prayers are with you.
