Condolences

I was so saddened to hear about Uncle Richard’s passing. I will never forget his orneriness and the laughter we shared. Now that he has reunited with Aunt Cheryl in Heaven, I know he is smiling and already out on the dance floor. RIP and know that you left us with many memories that will not be forgotten.

Going to miss you buddy.

How quickly time passed by since our lunch together. Little did we realize it would be our last. Reminiscing in tears discusing our family and those who left us much too early. Richard, I know you're finally happy now with Cheryl. I'll miss you cousin, see you on the other side.
Love, Mary Frances Dickerson Hampton

And oh what fun we had in vacation bible school at FCOG.You’re now wrapped in Jesus arms along with Cheryl.Rest in Peace old friend.

Tammy & Elizabeth, I am going to miss those early morning calls and our times at Bible study & Sunday School. I'm so thankful for our times together and the closeness Laura and Ronnie had with their Uncle Rich. I told Rich to quit asking the Lord to take him home and he did but I didn't expect the answer to come so fast. He was loved and will be missed.

Tammy, Beth and family, your father was friends with Bob for 45 years and will leave a huge hole in his heart. We loved how Rich made us laugh "sure he did" and remember the good times with him and Cheryl at topsail in North Carolina. Sending our love and prayers.

My sincere sympathies on the passing of your dad. He always had a big smile on his face & a kind word. Your family has always been very special to me. I’m sending you prayers of comfort. Love you!

Just wanted to express how sad I was to hear of his passing. I first met him at Tring and told him he was going to be my adopted grandpa. He always had a smile on his face and always put a smile on mine when I had the privilege of seeing him. Again my condolences are with you but am sure he is happy to be reunited with Cheryl. May he rest in peace.

Your dad was a special person. Him and your mom told me about Topsail and the Island Inn. My husband and I honeymooned there because of their rave reviews. Your dad will always be missed by all who knew him. I know I will miss him. My heart aches for you and your family at this difficult time.

Will miss your smiling face.
