Happy Birthday, Richard

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHappy Birthday, Richard! I almost didn’t get to write this for you! Just a few months ago we thought we were going to lose you. But, thank the Lord, you recovered! Now we’ve just lost our mother. We were blessed to have her for 99 and a half years! In just two more days we’ll be burying her ashes beside Dad’s.                                       I believe you’re 79 today. Whoa! You’re still a radio personality in northern Colorado. With your ‘Oldies’ program running for six hours, every Sunday evening, you do keep busy. But this is something you love to do… that’s why you’re so good at it! 104.7 FM Pirate Radio. So keep it up as long as you’re able. I wish for you a very happy birthday and many more. I love you, Richard, my big brother.

Heavenly Father, thank You for Richard. He’s been my big brother my entire life. I almost lost him this year but You saw fit to touch him and You gave him more time to be with us here on earth. Please continue to be near him as he is husband to Cookie; father to Rick, Andy, Susan, Heidi; grandfather to Rich, Lindsey, Robin, Jonathan, Kimberlyn, Braden, Courtney and Jenna; great-grandfather to Christian and Branden. Even more: he’s a brother, uncle, cousin, friend and neighbor. Bless him in all these relationships and especially in his relationship with You. I love Richard so much and You love him even more!
