I still can’t believe he is gone. I remember him playing domino’s with his Uncle John when they lived on Damien. Or just coming over and saying hi what’s up and if John needed any help He was always there to help him no matter what it was. I’m going to miss not seeing you at Aunt Donna’s house for holidays. Love you Richie

This is tough. Really hard to swallow. I'm sitting here devastated knowing I won't see one of the most loyal people that was in my life. It seems like yesterday we were kids running the streets and breaking night. You practically raised me as a kid as our mom had to work 2 jobs to put food on the table. Seriously words can't express what you meant to me in my life.You always were there through thick and thin. Always had my back as well as others. You definitely were my role model growing up as kids and a true hero to me. A great big brother that I'll never forget. Until we meet again. Love always bro.

I'm gonna miss you man. I remember everything bro but I'll never tell anyone. The world is a little bit darker without you. I never thought I'd see this day. Thought you'd hear about me first. You have a beautiful family Rich. They always have a friend here with me brother. Till we meet again...
