parable by definition is a symbolic short story that illustrates or teaches some truth, religious principle, or moral lesson. He trusts that his parables, along with these stories will stir some emotions in you that we’ve all felt, emotions that can help bring some small measure of solace to those grieving the loss of someone dear to their heart.
Richard recently partnered with innovative book publisher who will be releasing this year and genuinely hopes it will inspire all who read it to always try & say;I’ll see you later, instead of goodbye.
