I always enjoyed talking with Rich at the Slidell High games. When I was laid off he even offered me info on acting gigs if I was interested. I ran into him at Waffle House recently and it was great to speak with him.

A true friend and I will miss him.

Dear Kathy and girls,

We will miss Richard as he was ALWAYS a light. We are thankful for all his great coaching of the team over the years. Danny enjoyed laughing and talking about acting with Richard. Recently they shared a sandwich at Subway and shared in some laughter.

Kathy I will make it a priority to check in on you. Girls go on with your lives, that is what your Dad would want. Remember the good times with you Dad. It's
