    I have known this family for many years. Mr. Richardson was a wonderful man. I never saw him when he wasn’t smiling. He was an excellent example of what a Godly man is and should be. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, Uncle and friend. He will be greatly missed. One thing is for sure, he is an angel in Heaven enjoying God’s company.
