What was originally written on Richard's website
There are so many things about Richard that I could say, but the magnitude of what I want this site to represent needs to be built by not just me; but all he has touched.
I am so blessed for the time that I had with Richard. He gave me a beautiful son & a world that I knew nothing about. He taught me how to give and expect nothing in return. He is such a wonderful person.
I will miss him today, forever and always. I still want him here, and need to tell him things. The hardest part about all of this, he was only 31 years old. He passed away from Hypertrophic Cardio Myopathy (Enlarged Heart) but to be honest, they could have said anything and no answer they ever will give me will make this situation better or bring him home to us. He was called home to a better place, I can not be upset about that. I can only thank God, for the time he allowed me to have with Richard.
There is a little poem that I would like to add because when I read it not only did it give me the chills but it made such a powerful impact on me. The Broken Chain We knew little that morning that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God.
