Bryan, Richard & Family,May God comfort you during this difficult time. He was my teacher, my patient and friend at PDC, and since retiring thought of him often. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend the service, but my thoughts will be with all of you. I met you, Richard, as my PT 10 yrs. ago. God bless you.
