    I met Richard through the Rendezvous
    People, mostly from the New Ulm Yrade Fair. He came to all the Rendezvous I had here in Pipestone and I loved just sitting with him to listen to his stories. I, for one, will always feel privileged to have known him. Deepest sympathy to all of his Family.
