I've been trying to think how long we had known each other.... I sure its been about 20 years we met on social media while Richard was working as a nurse there in Tenn. We use to have poetry readings on Friday nights with bad audio through dial-up connections. But his voice always captivated me as well as his readings. We became friends which turned into long-term friends. Embracing & Encouraging each other other talents through the years. He with painting me with jewelry design. We would sit on the computer a video chat for hours about each other spouses - family - Music - world events - stupid stuff and laugh to it hurts. We had a strong ole fashion friendship. Several years ago we met in person at my home in Durham, North Carolina it was a wonderful afternoon that I will always treasure. As he met my husband, we noted how Ms Cora was missing from this meeting as she was my friend also. They were a beautiful couple. To me Mr. Richard McGinnis was truly a Distinguished Gentleman who showed ladies much respect & love... and I so so glad that I was a part of that by knowing him, Thank You, my friend, I Thank you, Thank You tearfully submitted: Charlene J. & Curtis Bass of Durham North Carolina

My sincere condolences to the family. Words are never enough to take away the pain; but we can find comfort in God's promises in the bible to soon bring our loved ones back to life again, remove all suffering and death forever- Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:3-5. At that time humans will live in perfect health and in peace on a paradise earth- Psalms 37:29. Numbers 23:19 assures us that God does not tell lies and when He says something, He will do it. May the family find hope and comfort in these promises that are just ahead and may God provide everyone with strength and inner peace now and in the coming days ahead. I also hope that the family can find more bible based comfort by visiting jw.org. In the search box please type: Is there hope for the dead video. The family will be in my prayers.
