The Love of a Brother is sacred. For that true Love lasts beyond the boundaries of time and space. No distance, not even that of death shall remove the memory of the Love I have for My Brother and His. All that he ever was and has become is engraved in my Soul forever. Your Loving Brother, Johnny Thomas

I send prayers to Richard's family at this time of his passing and the days that follow. Even though I had not seen him in a while and did not know of his illness, he will always be remembered by me for his smile and twinkling eyes! Along with any joke or story that came to mind at the moment! He was a wonderful person to have known.
