On July 1 at 11:20 p.m. from this earth departed one of the most genuine people I knew.


Richard Bedford, to wish you were still here with us would be selfish, for I know you are now in a much better place, continuing the job you started here and did so well. It has been an honor and a pleasure to know somebody of your integrity and demeanor. Your life was one of servitude, positively impacting all of those who came within your presence.  You always found the time to provide guidance, wisdom, and encouragement, selflessly leading us to brighter and better paths. Although your time on this earth has ended and this chapter has closed, your legacy will continue to live. Thank you for being you. You may be gone. But you’ll never be forgotten.
