Enter your relationship with Felix Richard Varnell Enter your city ,

I enjoyed my visits with Richard. The stories, the day to day challenges and joys. One of my favorite memories of him, there are many, is: he would come into my office, ready to take his "walk" His pockets full of doggie biscuits. He would go around Capital Lake, he knew all the "regulars" (dogs that is) He did not know the human names, but did know dogs names and their preferences. It made his day, and hearing him talk about these dog visits made mine. I am sure you are spending a lot of time at the rainbow bridge, whatever you choose, choose peace. Rest in peace my friend, always in my heart.
