Our Prayer, for an Angel Who Just Earned His Wings…..
Thank you dear Lord for sharing Richard with us. For we know the plans you have for him are much greater, and find comfort in knowing you must have needed this Angel for something special.
As we say goodbye to a dear friend, we pray that you will bless his soul. We honor you father God and give you the praise and glory for all things, for we know that Richard is not gone forever but merely changing neighborhoods.
We will always cherish the memories we’ve shared and he will forever remain in our hearts – for this we are thankful. As we celebrate his life, we will do so with joy and honor. May he rest in peace as his transitions to his forever home, but raise the roof in celebration as he begins his new life, a birth into eternity.
Sleep softly, sweet Richard, we will long for the time that we will meet again.
In Loving Memory……
