You coached me in high school, inspired me to start wrestling, and taught me life lessons i carry with me today. You were always good by me, and gave me tough love when i needed it. I wish we could play another pickup game in the drive way or at the gym. You were the best uncle, mentor, and friend. Rest in peace David Richardson.”
