To the Stanley Family: I knew Richard when he lived at the Virginia Veteran Care Center (VVCC); he would come to the Disabled American Veterans, Chapter 3 Lounge as I worked the bar. Richard was a funny guy with a kind heart and he will be truly missed by all of us. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of him. My condolences to your family and I will keep your family in my prayers during this difficult time of sorrow...
