So sorry to hear of Richard's passing. He was a good friend and team mate. I will never forget the day we won the Louisiana High School State baseball championship. He was my catcher. He was always so up beat. He will be truly missed by all who knew him. May God bless and hold the family close until you Meet again in heaven .

Dear Amy and family,

I was very saddened to hear about your father's passing.

Your dad was always part of your story when you and your friends here at John Hancock would meet for lunch. Your profound love and devotion for him was right there, through the saga of his ailments and ordeals to slow down the relentlessness of the disease.

Please take solace in the fact that you were there with him, embracing him with your love, till his last and peaceful breath.

Thinking of you at this time of loss. May his memory be forever a blessing in your life.

Mr. Bell was a wonderful teacher, even for the math challenged. He was always so upbeat and engaging. I hope your fond memories will help you through this difficult time.

Mr. Bell was a fine teacher and a wonderful story teller. His stories broadened the horizons of this young girl from a tiny town. I will always remember him for his southern pride and joyful heart. You will not be forgotten. Kelly Whitney Hanley. Class of 81.

Rick and family. My condolences to you and your family. I will always remember your dad as a big supporter of Rebel sports games in the 80's. Always yelling in that southern accent...Go Rebels! Rob Barrett SBHS 89

Richard will be sorely missed. His smile, laughter, stories and the ability to engage anybody in a fun and lively conversation was his unique gift to all of his. His generous nature also was extremely appreciated. My kids are still using his teacher/school supplies that he gave to them after his retirement. His teachings and spirit will go on here in our household forever. Sending all our love to the Bell family.
