Dear Benny & family, I, unlike Richard, didn't know your dad real well but enjoyed talking to him on the phone. He seemed like such a great guy and probably do just about anything for anyone. I pray for peace and comfort for you all knowing you'll meet again and he'll suffer no more. Benny, know we'll always be here for you even when Richard is out on the road. We all love you. Dana, Richard, Russ, and the girls
