Some of my favorite pictures from Richard's younger days. The picture in the second row is his childhood church. You can see him as a baby and toddler; a school boy; with his mom and dad; with his sisters; as a Cub Scout and then a Boy Scout; a teenager; his Senior picture; graduation and then the beginning and the end of his years in the Army. The final picture is of the house that he grew up in. His mother lived there until her death at age 93. The house was built by his father. It had some really neat design ideas that were before their time. For instance a laundry shoot in the bathroom which sent the dirty clothes to the basement. A wall cabinet that held a full size ironing board in the kitchen (that is now in my bedroom) a built in recipe box in the kitchen and many other really cool things. I love looking at these old pictures. Hope you enjoy them too!
