I want to offer my deepest most sincerest condolences for the loss of Richard! I met Richard at LLV, and he was such a pleasure to care for. He made me laugh and always had such a beautiful smile on his face. He could brighten up anyone's day. It was such a shock to me to hear of his passing. May our God comfort yous through this terribly tough time, and always Jackie Curtin- CNA @ LLVPV
