Richard was quite the man, talented in many ways.  When I think of him, I always think of Clark Gable (maybe it's just me).  Richard's Dad, Tom Sain, and my Dad worked together at Burlington Industries.  May you rest peacefully.  Charlie E.

Deeply regret that Richard will not be attending our 50th GHS reunion--was looking forward to hopefully seeing him.  Remember him well growing up.  We shared activities such as Civitan Boys Choir, Little League, miget football, Sunday School at West Market Methodist Church, etc.  As we used to say when closing many of our church youth group meetings: "The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace." God bless you and your family, Richard.
