Sad News - Judge Jim Richards - Che Guevera
Sadly, one of our long term members, Che Guevera, Judge Jim Richards, lost his battle with cancer today. He leaves behind his wife Laura and a young family. The Richards family reside in Fort Bend County, Texas.
Jim was one of a handful of people here on the site who I felt I got to know. In his last e-mail to me, he said he was enjoying the pool where he was sitting in Nicaragua but I learned later that he had gone into respite care.
I'll always remember his wicked sense of humor. Back over a year ago, the day before his first surgery, I said to the *very* Republican Jim that after they cut out the bad parts, not to be surprised if he came to as a Democrat! He said that made him laugh and he got a lot of mileage out of it.
By all who knew him, he was known for all the service he gave his community, his good nature and sense of humor.
Jim, you will be missed.
