    Richard and I became friends following the death of his brother and my neighbor, Casper. He was always so upbeat and happy, it rubbed off on me. I found it hard to believe he was pedaling the streets on his electric bicycle in spite of his poor vision. What spirit! He was a forever young 90+ year old. I'm so, so sorry he had to suffer following a simple cataract operation. Should not have happened! Richard, I know God now holds you lovingly in the palms of His hands. Thanks for the memories.
