  1. We were deeply saddened to hear of Richard’s passing. Richard was a dear friend who had helped me a lot when I was a Bishop many years ago. Terry and I have you in our thoughts and prayers. May the Spirit of the Lord be with Marcia and the rest of Richard’s family during the weeks and months to come.
    God Bless you all!
    Richard and Terry Bowman
