Richard and Anne have been our friends for years. Richard and I both taught insurance classes. One time we even had a chance to teach a class together. He always made it fun and interesting while teaching everything the students needed to know. It has been our honor to know Richard and Anne. He was one of a kind and is greatly missed.
