To the dear family of Red
In behalf of my family Cecil and Ruth Moore
I know my dad and red were so funny when they got together and as well he was friends with my brothers at richland center. He was a good egg... I am sure you will miss that silliness that he could dish out..
He was truly one of a kind. He use to tease me when I would with my dad. I am truly sorry that you have lost a great guy. But the heavens will be a lot more fun with him there. Hugs to all of you
