Should you feel like making a memorial donation in Richard’s name, the family asks that instead you do something outside and enjoy the sunshine. Plant a tree, take a hike (you know Richard means that both ways), go fishing, go hunting, splash in the waves, enjoy the smell of a campfire, and just be good.
