    We are sorry to hear about Mr. Richardson's death. Please find comfort in the promise at Revelation 22:1-2: It points to the time when we will be healed completely of all our ailments. It assures us of God's provision through Jesus for giving everlasting life to all obedient persons who love God and neighbor. Our deepest sympathy for your loss!
