Mr. will be missed. I've been blessed to have had you cross my path in my lifetime. Your warm smile and the twinkle of your eyes will live on through your daughter Cathy - who will ever forget that wonderful boat ride at sunset at Conchas for your birthday when we could have 'sunk the ship' with all of Cathy's friends that wanted to be a part of Big Daddy's birthday celebration....thank you for your smiles, hugs, and example of friendship.
You've been a awesome Captain as you steered your way through life!

To all the Richards,

Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I always had a soft spot in my heart for Uncle Johnny. That twinkle in his eye was always followed with teasing words and a wonderful laugh. I will always smile when I remember his nickname for me "Penelope"....

Love and prayers,
Sher and David Hutchins and Family

He was always happy with a smile for everyone. Had a joke or a memory each time I saw him.

Beth it sounds like you and Johnny continued to have a great life together long after you left Nashville, SW. I'm sorry to read about Johnny's passing, but I'm sure you have loads of wonderful memories to look back on. I always remember you two were q great couple - you always driving back to Texas after your labor started) each year to have another child and Johnny holding the fort down while you were gone.
