You, the girls, and the remainder of Richard's family are in our prayers. I have no doubt that Richard was crazy about you and the girls! He was very supportive of all our PTC endeavors and he was a great SNA president. He enjoyed nursing and I am sure he did a great job with those he cared for. My prayer is that you will all be comforted and enjoy those special memories that you all shared together.
