Since we met, you have been with me. In daydreams, you invade my thoughts, when I think of you, I smile. Today.....I was in a bookstore. I am saddened that you left me, too soon, Richard. While out riding my bike, a storm ensued. Naked to the storm, I was driven into a place, you and I could get lost in, a book store. It was so cute the day you told me, that when you were meeting people for the first time, at their homes, and you were at a loss if you didn't see any books. You said, "I knew I was not in the right company." Richard, in life....I loved you as my friend, and in spirit now, I love that you visit me. Like at the book store today....I just want to mention that when I voiced your name, the bookstore stood still, like a frozen tundra....then the applause started as we spoke of you. The ones you touched before you went to your angel duties Richard. We miss you. Save a seat for me in the library, next to you please. Your legacy is deeper than the life of trees. Love you always.... and forever in my heart.
