    Richard, Was a very beautiful and kind person and I was shocked to find that he passed at such a young age. Richard cared about me for many years with a love that was very deep. In those days nobody could understand our feelings however there was nobody as kind as Richard nobody had the ability to love like Richard. I wrote a note however had some errors in spelling and felt bad. Just to show you how great a person Richard was we had an English sheep dog and Richard named him love and stuff. Richard was very devoted to Unted Airlines he was a great flight attendant manager and was a great sales manager in interline sales. Everyone at United loved Richard. Richard helped me get my first job at Eastern Airlines in 1971 and I was there till the airline folded in 1991. Richard supported eveything I did and was very proud of my accomplishments. There was not a kinder and more loving person then Richard. Richard loved Hawaii and we went over to the islands and toured all the volcanoes and the experience was one I would never forget. Richard and I had our ups and downs however I never forgot his love and kindness I was very young when we met now I am 68 years old and will always have the memories of how Richard treated the people he cared about. Whether it was his younger brother Lenny or his mom or his friend komachki kallahany, I know I am not spelling his name correctly however komachki was Richard's Hawaiian brother. Now that Richard is with our lord Jesus Christ I know he is in heaven because Richard was and is an angel that was loved by many. He will truly going to be missed.
