Our hearts are saddened upon hearing of Richard's passing. Richard's family of the Morris's and my family of the Clark's go back many, many years. Richard & Sally would always come over to our Garage for Jerry to do the work on their vehicles. Richard, Sally, Jerry and I would set for hours relieving the olden days of living in Poosey. Richard and Sally both had a heart of gold and would help anyone they could. Sally I know you will miss Richard deeply, but, you have a wonderful family to help you and to keep Richards memory alive. All our love Jerry and Carolyn let us know if you need anything , God keep you and Bless you all.

My condolences to the family. When loosing a loved one it can be unbearable. That is why God has provided scriptures in the Bible to help ones cope with the loss. In the Bible book of Isaiah 25:8 Jehovah God promises soon to "swallow up death forever." He also promises to bring back those who have fallen asleep in death (Acts 24:15). In a little while longer this kind of pain will be a thing of the past (Revelations 21:4). May these scriptures bring you comfort in this difficult time
