Savannah, Jekyll Island and the North Georgia mountains were tops on his list of destinations and he recalled favorite activities and restaurants in each.

Whenever I think of RT, I remember his love of game shows. His excitement and enthusiasm was infectious. I know Leslie is so happy to have him but I hate the loss Richard will feel. Know your family is here and how much we love you!

I stand corrected. Now that I think about it, Richard wasn't the friend that did basketball in high school, although I do think he participated in special Olympics with WPE when he was younger. Another great memory was always seeing his Mom and Dad loving and supporting him in every way possible!

Richard was a classmate and friend of mine from West Point Elementary until our 2003 graduation at Troup High School. I remember him wheeling down the halls at WPE just grinning, laughing, and enjoying life to the fullest. He was a pro at maneuvering his wheelchair. I think I have memories of him getting in trouble a few times for speeding. Lol I loved being able to help him in any way I could. I also remember him participating in the Special Olympics and being pretty great at basketball. He may not have realized it, but he was teaching me a lot about life, love, compassion, perseverance, etc. He was a precious soul!! Prayers for you Mr. Fuller as you grieve his loss. The Robinson family is lifting you up and holding you close in our thoughts and prayers. (Shelee Robinson McCorkle)
