Yesterday, I heard about the passing of Richard. I can’t express how heavy my heart is for you. Your family and friends will comfort you at this time. Faith in God will also get you through. Richard is now home with our all mighty God. The future days will be filled with many emotions, but your memories will last you forever keep them alive and in your heart. The Klepfer family has been in my life for a very long time, whenever they hurt I hurt. I go all the way back to Irvin and all the family at the Galveston Greenhouse. Those we some of my most fun days growing up. Hugs for you and I will be praying for your comfort during this time.
