Condolences to the family, so sorry for your loss. My Mother, Ruby Burkhart was a friend of Richards at Walking Horse and missed his vistis when he moved. I often talked with him when I visted Mom and always enjoyed the conversations. Thoughts and Prayers during this difficult time. L. Wheelock

Condolences to the family. My mother, Margaret Rowe was very fond of him at Walking Horse Meadows. The ladies at their dining table missed him when he moved.

You are Missed! Pulled out a pair of your old work gloves cut trees most of the day. Reminded me of working with you and your wife on your farm. Good memories!
