I remember Richard when he used to hang out at our house with my older brothers when I was a kid, it was a common site to see them do handstands and walk around the neighborhood on their hands. I remember that he was always personable, pleasant and humorous. Years later when he was in town, he would drop by to visit with my mother, which was always a treat for her. Good memories of him!
