Dear Richens family,

I have never met your, nor did I know your precious father, Shane. But from time to time, I read the obituaries to learn from the lives others have lived. I happened to stop on the picture of your father. Nothing prepared me for your touching and poignant memories of this man you loved, and the kind of life he had lived. As a total stranger, I was so moved, I am going to go back and take down notes. Truly, your father cherished his family, and understood that the greatest treasure he could take from his walk through this life was to follow our Savior, live by His teachings, and create bonds with his beloved family that would be endure forever. It is my hope that you will each feel him close to you. That you will know this separation is but for a small moment, and he will absolutely be watching over each of you. You indeed have a hero in this remarkable man. Catherine Crooks
