"Not a day goes by without thinking about you Richard. I still struggle realizing you are gone. In my heart you are always there. In Peace."
"Richard it's been a year and you remain in the thoughts and hearts of many. Today I will hoist a brew and think of you. I hope you came to know the peace of Christ and the enjoyment of eternal life."
""richard we were strongly connected during my stint @ Stockton State College and we learned alot from each other re: life experiences politics and music and basic whole foods cooking but unfortunately u slipped into the sunset". i trully valued our connection but when u made the move to the philly vicinity our connection was a hit or miss mostly miss.anyway sorry i couldn't be present for your finale service but i was totally there in spirit so now it's time for me to go so Rest In Peace my dear friend Terrence Fahy"
"Richard, you were a good friend and I came to appreciate the many ways in which we helped each other. You went away suddenly and I wasn't there to help you move(!) I trust that the memorial service will do justice to who you were. Rest in Peace. Jack Kennedy"
"You were so very special to me, Richard; such a part of my heart. I will never forget you, my dear, sweet Richard. It was a privileged to have you in my life."
Have a suggestion for us?
