Living over 1000 miles from Toledo, I never got to see much of my my mom's family. You are one of the few family members that I have any real memories of. I remember you working at a fish farm, getting Danny and I a pet hamster, a picture of John Lennon that hung by your door where you lived in Valrico. When I was in my late teens and early 20's I grew my hair and beard because I thought I looked like you. I've always loved you Uncle Richard.
