RIP Richard Ybarra

Have you ever been in a place where you didn't know anyone?
Or get stuck in a bland conversation? 
Of course, we all have. All of us but Richard...
Richard could orchestrate the room as he directed conversation. He'd charm your grandmother then teach sneaky tricks to the kids. With him a casual stop in to the market could turn into an adventurous and thrilling tale. 

Richard was... Fun, courageous, confident. Only he could say anything and get away with it. He was charming, sincere, loving. There was something about him, something amazing and unexplainable and I loved it. I knew him, he was in my family and I was lucky to have had him. 

You went away too soon... 
I love you, I miss you,
