We met Jamie, Richard, Cade & Cole when our son & Cade played in Little League baseball together. Their team won the 2017 Alabama State Championship and then we traveled to North Carolina for Regionals. So all of us families were together daily! Those few months will always be some of our family's greatest memories. Richard was a character, a proud baseball Daddy, & showed love and pride for all the boys. He was continuously walking the fence with words of encouragement, pride, and yes, displeasure at a bad call or a bad play but follow it up with "you got this" or "let's go"! Our family sends our sincerest condolences to Jamie, Cade, Cole, Richard's friends, his parents and the rest of his family. Rest in Peace, Richard!! We pray your soul feels completely free ❤️

Pam and Richard, I am so sorry to learn of your son Richard’s death. My daughters grew up with him and his sister and brother at Central Baptist. I will always remember how active, smart, and inquisitive he was. In Children’s Church, he would be in constant motion, but know every answer to every question. I loved him!

Pam and Richard we are so sad to hear about your loss of Richard. I remember how he used to sit in front of us at Central Baptist . Always smiling. Please know that I do know some of the feelings you are going through and I am praying that God gives you comfort and peace in this tragedy. You were so sweet with your condolences when Jeremy and the Kristin died and it meant so much to us. If you ever need to talk don't hesitate to call.
