Sorry for your loss. I know I am going to miss him. Life at Frankfort Baptist and on Bee Creek won’t be the same.

So sorry for your loss. Richard was a great man, and a great friend. We (Ron & Richard) share a special memory of working together on the crown molding for the Frankfort Baptist Church. He took great pride in the work he was doing for his Lord. He will be missed by all who knew him.
