I was deeply saddened to learn of Richard's death and I would like to express to you my sincere sadness and sympathies to you and your family at this difficult time. I will always be grateful to “Snuffy” for giving me such good advice about home maintenance, camping and for always bringing me candy and sweets at Huck’s. Whenever I saw or spoke with Snuffy, we looked forward to hearing the latest stories about your children and grandchildren-he was so proud of them and loved to discuss all of their accomplishments.
With Sincere Sympathy,
Michelle & Bill Carter
