Five years today, Cara Mia. You live in my heart. My dreams are bittersweet, as they bring me both joy and the reminder of sorrow. I consider them a gift from God, to assure me you are with Him. I love you❤️


January 01, 2021 7:50AM

Approaching 5 years, Cara Mia. I don’t see the devotion I posted here for your 57th birthday yet you know I am with you always. January 4 falls on Monday this year, the same as your passing. Bracing myself for this particular anniversary date. I still miss you so much.


December 25, 2020 8:06PM

Happy birthday, Rich. I love and miss you as much as ever; yet, your spirit and our life together fills my heart. You would have struggled with this year’s historical, devastating events and I am so very thankful that you are instead in a place of perfection. My love for you endures, Cara Mia! 💞Kris

I remember this cat from High school. Could tell something was eating at him on the inside. He wasnt mean, in fact I recall him being nice but hauted by something. RIP


March 07, 2020 10:49PM

Our special day and month, again. I still dream of you often, Cara Mia. I’ll never stop missing you, never stop loving you. I believe. It was God’s grace and favor that put you in my life; His love that took you home to peace and everlasting joy. I love you always


January 04, 2020 1:06PM

Another dreaded anniversary - 4 years today, Cara Mia. I posted on your 56th birthday but don’t see it here. Nonetheless, you know how much I love you and how I still miss you so. It is a beautiful, sunny day this year; I celebrate those days you always loved.
I was so very saddened to learn of your mom’s passing yet knowing you and your parents are reunited in His glory makes me happy. I love you always❤️


December 25, 2019 3:40AM

Happy birthday, Cara Mia. I was saddened by the news of your mom, yet, i know she is now with you and your dad. A blessed reunion that is now complete and with unconditional love.
I still miss you with all my heart but my love for you is unwavering. To this day people still compliment my ring and I proudly express my eternal commitment to you. Until we’re together again, I keep you close to my heart and soul❤️


January 04, 2019 11:19PM

Three years today, with a heavy heart. I will never stop missing you; never stop loving you...


December 25, 2018 7:35PM

Happy birthday, my love. This third anniversary has been more difficult than I expected. I wasn’t sure why I felt it more strongly this year, and my dreams about you have been most vivid. Now that I’ve seen your father’s post...I think I understand why. I believe you and he are once again united - in the highest of God’s Love - in peace and beautiful harmony. I love you always❤️


March 04, 2018 9:46PM

It’s our month, Cara Mia. I wish we could be together. I miss you so. 💞


January 04, 2018 2:22PM

Today, two years. An eternity and a split second shared. A time when my life stood still and forever changed. Yet you are with me always; in my heart and thoughts; the necklace I wear daily; the rings that remain on my left hand; in my total being until we meet again. It’s a sunny day this year - watch for the balloons! 🎈I love you Cara Mia.

Another Christmas birthday without you, Cara Mia. Yesterday would have been Rich’s 54th birthday. Too young to be gone; yet...he had a very pessimistic world view and I can’t say that I blame him. Rich was a conscientious man who would not have tolerated the state of today’s world. I know his new realm is a place we all aspire to become a part of. I still miss my husband every single day.

817-304-8112. Please call me so we can talk. This Morris family has so little connection. It has been there for so long. I have heard a few stories here and there. My father was Richards Uncle by biology. He and his brother Dick did not speak to one another. I never knew why. As children we all saw each other at holidays but it all stopped when we were teens. There seemed to be deep jealousies or anger somehow.i truly know no facts, just the void of a loving family on my Dads side. It is a hard time of year And I would like to connect and hear stories from someone who loved someone I once knew briefly. God bless you and your family.


August 28, 2017 5:10PM

It's been quite a while since I've been here, Cara Mia but that doesn't mean I've not thought about you and missed you every single day. The little things keep me grounded: the sound of your voice, your laugh, your humor, your touch, your movements, how you loved me...These are all memories I cherish and keep alive. I still pray for you - for your soul at peace. Knowing that you have been freed from poor health and those unique emotional struggles gives me comfort, despite how much I continue to miss you. There will never be another. I love you with all my being.

On the anniversary of your passing Rachel and I released balloons in your honor, Cara Mia. It began as one of those cloudy, chilly days you never liked. We went to a peaceful place at the lake to send you love and release the balloons. It was the most beautiful moment when the clouds began to part and the sun peeked out! Then there was the hawk. They say that the presence of a bird at the time of loss and grief is a sign that "everything is going to be alright". I watched as the hawk circled above us and then it seemed to follow the balloons. I watched them float into the Heavens until they disappeared. Of course I cried - out of sadness, my enduring love for you, and because somehow I think you were right there watching it all. If it weren't for the presence of God in my life, I don't know how I would have made it this first year without you Cara Mia. God and family; I am truly blessed. I send your words back to you: "I will always love you" 💕


December 25, 2016 8:29PM

Rich would have been 53 today. This year, an enormous void for me yet a reminder of how precious life is. I love you and miss you so much Cara Mia.


September 30, 2016 8:07PM

Bracing myself for this time of year when Rich would decorate the house for Halloween, get ready for TEXAS-OU weekend; prepare our Thanksgiving meal (the best, most tender turkey I've eaten-but my cornbread dressing was better 😉); and he was usually the first on our street to put the lights up for Christmas. He was born on Christmas Day and I'd make a point of wrapping some gifts in birthday paper, the others in Christmas wrap. So this year I'm bracing myself for the first seasonal holidays without Rich...immediately followed by the first anniversary of his passing from this world. I know I will get through it, as he would want me to, but I also expect that unique pain will make its presence known. I am blessed by God's mercy and trust Him completely to help me carry this burden and ultimately heal my broken heart. I couldn't have made it this far without the love of God and family.
I miss you so much, Cara Mia and I will honor you in days to come.

September 01, 2016 8:19PM brother and I have both left our phone numbers. home is 817-379-3900. We would like to talk to you if and when you feel you can. We left notes on this page...we knew Richard when we were all little. Would love to hear from someone who knew him and loved him.Please leave a message if I do not answer. I am traveling a bit in the coming months. Again, we are so sorry for your loss.


August 22, 2016 11:11PM

I so miss my husband Rich; I "talk" to him daily in thought and prayer. At times I seem to hear his voice assuring me that he is merely gone physically. I honor Rich's vibrancy and hold him in my heart like no other.
I love you Cara Mia❤️

Wondering if you will get this. I am wondering if this man has a sister named Michelle and parents Dick and Joan Morris of Dallas? I look for him and Michelle once in a while on line. If so, my cell is 817-304-8112. So sorry for your loss.

Monday, July 4 marked 6 months since I lost you Cara Mia. Monday, April 4 marked month 3, and that was an especially difficult day for me. I found myself dreading the 4th of July but by God's grace and mercy, last Monday was a little easier than I anticipated (and I'm glad there are no more months this year when the 4th falls on a Monday!).
I still listen to EWTN during my daily commute; the spiritual food I receive is helping me heal and gives me strength. Though I'm not the same without you - nor will I ever be - prayer and faith are molding my "new normal". Not quite used to baseball without you or listening to our music and just talking. Haven't been able to walk myself into an antique store or Estate sale yet and only beginning to listen to some of our music. Not having our conversations...I will never become accustomed to that. I realize this is all a process and the day will come when I'm not haunted by losing you. Until then, I am grateful for all the happy memories that sustain me when the sadness ushers in. I feel your presence watching over me as I keep you in my thoughts, prayers and in my heart. My one & only...I love you and I miss you, Rich.


June 15, 2016 10:56PM

Went to Arizona, Cara Mia and saw many of the places you told me about. I thought of you all the time, wishing we were there together. Yet, I felt you watching over me. We have a bond that will never be broken despite our separate realms. So many small yet significant things that remind me of your presence - things I believe are messages from God that your soul lives on and keeps me close. My one & only, there will never be another. I love you and I thank God for putting you in my life.

Carrying on Rich's tradition of Spring planting. Took time after work to plant bright yellow Marigolds, one of his favorites. Planted some other things that I thought he would like and set the solar lights he loved.
Seeds might be next, Cara Mia. You know how you could never get enough seeds to plant! 😉 I love you forever


April 11, 2016 9:23PM

Rich loved the Spring & Summer months when he could spend time outside, in the sun. The lawn was his canvas and he made it beautiful. He was so very gifted in so many ways, yet seemed to take these with a grain of salt. He used to do wonderful things with pieces of furniture, bringing the forgotten back to life. And write...he wrote beautifully - a lost art these days. So much I miss about him. I miss him; I miss having him in my life to share those things that only we understood together.
Cara Mia, the house where I now live is missing a huge part of me...and that part is you. Gradually, I arrange it with thoughts of you so that it might feel just a little less empty. My heart and prayers are filled with you. I love you for eternity.


March 27, 2016 7:24PM

Happy Easter, Cara Mia. I've been listening daily to the Catholic radio station that you had set in the car. It has made this Lent even more meaningful and it supports my healing. Good sermons in the mornings on my way to work and thought-provoking discussions on my way home. It's no "coincidence" (you never believed in those) that I happened to push that particular button - not realizing you had set it. I believe it to be a gift from you and God. That gift is precious and it is my foundation these days. I love you Rich.


March 10, 2016 6:53PM

I'm coping a little better day by day but today was a difficult one. The roller coaster of grief. God led me to a special little book of Scriptures and as He would have it, I opened to the section titled "God is With Us in Our Sorrow"... Isaiah 61:1-3; 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Romans 14:7-8. I thank God for lifting me up and reminding me of how you made me smile and laugh. I keep you in my heart every minute of every day. I love you Cara Mia.


March 03, 2016 9:37PM

Today is one of our special days and this is our special month. So sad without you but trying to focus more on the happy, funny, loving times. Silly voices and talking for the dogs. Spoiling the dogs. Spoiling me. Making me laugh until I couldn't breathe. Flowers, plants and all your paint! Loving Spring, sunshine and your roses. Creating your little gardens and working hard.
Wishing you were still here for our month of March.
Born into this world December 25, 1963 and born into everlasting life January 4, 2016. Rich is survived by his parents, sister, aunt, cousins, and wife.
I love you Cara Mia

Not even sure where to start, partly because I don't feel like I should be starting a paragraph to show my condolences to a man that was taken much too soon.

Richard was most definitely one of a kind. For starters, no one ever made my mom smile and laugh quite like he did. They would make eye contact at each other from across the room and I could tell they felt they were the only two people in the room. Sounds cheesy, but I guess you just had to see them together. No one ever understood my mom like Richard did and no one understood Richard like my mom did. The loss of this wonderful man has been so much more than the loss of a "step parent"... He took a piece of my mom with him. A piece that only he understood, but every everyone else could feel. He will be missed in so many ways. Watch over all of us, Richard. We love you.

And PS. We are taking good care of your lady... when she lets us. ❤️

Rich was a really good man. He treated me like one of the family from the first moments we met. I always enjoyed our Baseball and football talks or chatting about the JFK assassination and the different theories about it. I'll miss him and I know he's still watching over Kris. I'll be thinking about you this upcoming baseball season. Rest easy Rich your work is done.

Richard was my employee for a number of years at the the Uncommon Market.
We had some really good times and a few sad times but he was a good friend.


February 24, 2016 7:17PM

It's spring training in Arizona for Major League baseball. Very difficult for me this year because the game is one of the many loves we share. Cara Mia, I'm going to miss you shouting at the television from your armchair coaching dugout. "Don't swing at the first pitch!" you'd shout, or "Get him OUT of there!!". Or how about those many times you wanted a player traded until they rebounded in better plays? Then it was all good again until the next boneheaded play. Even those times you fussed so much that I couldn't hear the game - I'd gladly deal with that to have you back.
The "easier days" seem to keep me a little more grounded, then the waves of grief engulf me all over again. It's a mixed blessing to understand this process intellectually while at the same time feeling so much pain. I miss you beyond words, Cara Mia, and I love you with all my heart.


February 19, 2016 4:25PM

It's difficult to begin to describe this remarkable, complex man who was my husband and life mate. Through my overwhelming grief I have found some solice that, though our time together was far too brief, I am blessed for the nine years we had together. Not many knew Rich as I did; I saw his beautiful soul as well as his troubles. He was a GOOD man who cared deeply and without him, the void in my life is devastating. I love this man more than words can convey and I will return here often to share that love.
