    Rich was a sweet and a faithful brother who loved Jehovah to the end!
    One nice memory of Rich is that when it was the service group’s turn to clean the KH, he always was upfront and willing to clean the men’s room and didn’t just leave it for the sisters to clean. I always appreciated that about him! And one of the last days I got to see Rich, he was talking and moving his lips but no sound was coming out. I got up and asked if he wanted something. He said, no I’m saying a prayer. That showed me the loved and trust he had in Jehovah was very strong. And of course, he loved his dear wife. ❤️ Rich will be missed!

    Richard won the race. He ran the course, and despite imperfection, opposition from his adversary Satan the devil,, and the traps of his world, Richard crossed the finish line and will soon receive the prize promised by the one who cannot lie, the Creator.

    As a worshipper of the true God, Rich was not afraid to fall asleep knowing that his God Jehovah would call his name and wake him up before long. Richard proved his love for Jehovah God by the way that he lived his life of obedience to Him.

    What a joy it will be to be reunited with Richard in the near future, and to resume our friendship with him that this time will never end. If we, like Richard, win our individual races, and endure to the end of this old dying world, we will see him again.
