  5. Martha, Sharon, Bobby, Matt, Rich and Fam, I am so sorry to hear about Richmon. He was always so nice and such a gentle man. I feel I’ve known him all my life since he was a neighbor to my aunt & uncle, The Riddles. Rich, Jr. was always a sweet friend growing up, going to school together and beyond. The entire Redmon family is special to me. I sincerely hope all of you know that. I can just see the reunion in Heaven with Richmon, Mom-a-dear and Grandaddy. I know Richmon was so faithful to visit them and now they’re together again. I can’t say enough about what a wonderful family you are and how I miss you. God bless you and I will keep you in my prayers.

  6. Sharon and family, We are so sorry for your loss, Richmon was a true christian and a real gentleman. We ask God to wrap you in his arms of love, comfort you and give you strength and grace in the days ahead.
    Love and prayers,
    Ernest and Sue Greene

  7. Aunt Martha, Sharon, Bobby, Matt, & Rich, We were very sorry to hear about your loss! I have wonderful memories of the ‘adults’ & all of us kids running around Mom-a-dear & Granddaddy’s house when we were down on summer break. And Uncle Richmond (& Aunt Martha) were integral parts of those precious memories! At times like these it is especially hard to live so far away, but please know that you are all in our hearts, thoughts, & prayers!
    Love, Nancy & Jim
