Memories Timeline


  1. I remember a long time ago we had a family reunion type thing. My family, Erin and Eric’s Family and Travis and Leah’s family. Richard came and he was staying in our camper. When Richard arrived he brought a drink. This drink was some hard core liquor man. The name was like Root beer something. He passed it around the big circle we were sitting in and everyone took a drink kids and everyone. It went down like nails like it was bad. Another memory of him Zachary Wolf asked him flat out for 20 bucks. Richard the good guy he was he gave it to Zach. Erin Vanheel (Zachary’s Mother) trying to make zach give the money back and Richard wouldn’t accept it. Richard was a very good man. He was so so funny. He always had something funny to say that everyone would laugh at and he never gave up his dream. I’m so lucky to have him as my uncle, out of the 7 billion people in this world we are currently living on.
