    Mr. Meadows always made Carolyn’s friends feel like family. We both were nutty Gemini’s that really enjoyed pickles. So, that was our thing. His kindness will never be forgotten.

    I was a lucky recipient to Richards advice and love over the years. He treated me and my children as family. He will be sorely missed.
