Richard has been my friend for quite a while, and was the maintenance man at the Christian Coffeehouse I
used to work at. He was a very sincere and compassionate individual. We used to have long conversations in the wee hours of
the morning. He had a special interest in Zeppelins. One of his ideas was that these flying marvels (or similar flying machines)
could be used to carry lots of food to needy people around the world. They were large and wouldn't require a runway to land
or take off. What this idea showed me was his love for people and God.
There is a musical group called, Led Zeppelin. On one of their album covers they have a picture of a Zeppelin
with the Words, 'Stairway To Heaven'
Richard knew the true Stairway to Heaven (John 14.6) One day we who know Christ will fly with him for all
See You Soon Richard!
