Richey will be missed by the "Mears Bunch" so very much! He has missed our dad deeply for the last 4yrs. He was always there for dad. At the hospital,at the house, wherever. If dad was not well Richey was there. When dad left us Richey seemed lost for a bit.. Those two were certainly 2 of a kind a rare kind...brings me comfort to know those two are hanging again, watching over all of us. To Mike's family we love you guys so much and hope for peace in your hearts as you go through this tough time.
