Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Richardson family at this time. I was lucky enough to live a few houses away from Kent and Colleen in West Valley when I was growing up. I aways looked up to Kent for the great example he was as a family man and hard worker. I think about him often. Much Love Chris Morris and Family.
