    Richard did work for me for a few years and was the best I had ever worked with. He did some work on a family mountain home and Ill remember him always because some of the work made a huge difference for us at this home. I reached out to Richard about a month ago asking if he would like to go spend a few days at the mountain house but that didnt happen. Rest in peace.
