I'm sad to hear of your passing. I've lost touch the last two years from not working. My whole Sunday crew was always on my mind. I served you for 6 years at Gus's and you always greeted me with a smile and a pat on my shoulder. Prayers for the family for peace and comfort.

My condolences to the family in this time of need. RD was such a good man and full of compassion. He always seemed to put his needs last to show kindness to others like my MaMa (LaVon) from what I knew about him. They sure don't make men like that anymore and I feel blessed to have known him. Fly high with the angels RD, RIP.

To R. D.'s family: I am so sorry to learn of his death. I always enjoyed speaking with him at the McWhite family gatherings at West Gantt Baptist Church. I am in Florida these days and will not be able to attend the visitation or funeral, but know I am thinking of you. Penny Forrester
