I, along with all of Merle & Carrie Caraway's daughters and sons, will always remember Richard as a wonderful, kind and hard working man, just like anyone who knew him. I remember babysitting the kids back in the early 60's when your family lived down the long lane. I loved babysitting at your place, because it was so "homey" and they were such good kids, which was evidence of the solid and loving family life that they had. Later in life, it made me happy when Bret married into the Eichhorn family, which is another favorite family of mine with April being such a sweetheart; and I want both of them to know that I am thinking of them, along with you, Delores, and all of your family. May the sadness that you all now feel in your hearts, be replaced, in time, with the many good memories of a very special and loving man. Warmly, Mona (Caraway) Knadle
