    I am truly going to miss Richard. I have many many wonderful memories of working with him at Clay Electric. He truly was amazing on the drums! We used to have an employee cook out and he would play in the band. He always had a way of making you laugh!! Telling funny stories or a good joke! He was a good Christian man who loved his family and friends dearly and with all his heart! I was so glad we kept in touch after he retired as he always held a special place in my heart! I know Carole and the family are going to miss him terribly and I pray that that sadness is replaced with how happy he is in his heavenly home! Knowing I will see him again for all eternity makes me so happy! Sending much love and prayers to you all, Barbara Cato
