Richard, you will be missed!

For those of you that have been Fireside customers for a long time you probably know who Richard is (works Fri/Sat, tall gentleman). Richard is leaving the store after almost 10 years. He is moving out of the area to be close to family.
Richard has been a huge asset to the store and he will be sorely missed. His last 2 days are this Fri/Sat, June 16th/17th if you wish to say goodbye and wish him well.

All the Best Richard, Thanks for all you have done since we took over the business. You made the transition for us very easy.

Brian and Jeannie Webber
