I’m so sorry to learn of this news. My deepest sympathy goes to the family. Acts 24:15 gives us a hope of a resurrection. How we look forward to that time. Revelation 21: 3-5 also gives us a beautiful future when Jehovah God does away with pain, mourning and death forever. I hope these scriptures can bring some comfort during this hard time.

Richard,It’s difficult to wrap my mind around this — I just saw you in October. I never imagined that I would have to say goodbye to you like this. We met more than 30 years ago in 1985. One of my favorite memories of you is when you and Courtney visited Japan. We ate, drank, talked, and laughed. I will never forget this time with you, and I will cherish these memories forever.During the 30 years I’ve known you, we’ve also experienced some difficult times. The cotton industry can be challenging, filled with endless risks and difficulties, but you always remained calm and treated everyone with fairness and respect. You also gave me the bravery that I needed to get through these times. I’ve learned a great deal from you, and I’m so proud to have met you. I can’t thank you enough. I promise to continue to honor and grow the organic business that we built together with TOCMC and Marusan.I pray that your family finds peace, comfort, and healing during this difficult time. Rest easy, Richard. Yuji

Richard was cherished by my late friend, Randy J. They cycled together, and occasionally struggled together. Richard was a bulwark when we lost Randy. Rest in peace, faithful friend Richard.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Richard was a great Brit!! My wife, also a Brit, enjoyed visiting with him when he first came across the pond. We hope all the family are at peace.

Oh, Richard. This is really hard news. You stand out in my mind for your brilliance, your humor, and your compassion. There are few people in this world that genuinely and selflessly add to the goodness of this plane of existence. You are one of the few. I cannot imagine how much you will be missed by your family. I have great memories of you and I taking classes together at Tech. When I was doubtful, you assured me I was on the right path. I cannot tell you how much that means. Rest easy good Sir. And know your place is in our hearts.

I well remember Richard's sensitivity to the struggles of others and his willingness to be present amidst their needs. The way he lived his life allowed the world to spin a bit closer to an axis of decency and kindness.
