I didn't even know Rick, but I remember seeing his wife on CNN in the days following the attacks. I remember hearing her story of speaking to him on the phone and of his words to try to keep her calm. I remember they have a daughter. When I think of September 11, I think of this man and how he represents the thousands who left so many people who loved them behind. I'm still thinking of this family and their loss. I remember...

As I attempt to remind and explain to my four children of the tragedy that occurred 10 years ago, my thoughts always turn to Rick. I think of you often and wish so much that my family would have had the opportunity to know you. You are deeply missed by so many and will never be forgotten.

Rick, I will always miss you especially on this date. But, I look at this date as just another chance to remember what a great friend, father and husband you are.

You were a natural leader. You impressed and charmed people like no one I've known since. I'll never forget our NCAA trip to Colgate; good times. I'll never forget you.

My son, Michael, sent me this link yesterday. Over the years he has heard me tell stories of the "Greatest High School Football Team of All Time." There is never a tale told without mentioning my one and only #3! I cry like a baby every Sept. 11 when I see Rick's picture on the television as they scroll through the list of victims. He made a difference to so many of us, and his life and laughter live on and always will. But, it's just not right without him. I miss all my boys from that legendary team of 1983 and I think of them often. But I miss Ricky most of all. Always,

It may interest you to know that my wife and I are Puppy Walkers for the TSA. Yesterday we received a precious 12 week old male Labrador Retriever. We will be raising him for the first year of his life prior to his going full time into the TSA's explosive detection program. The TSA has named him Thorpe in recognition of Eric Raymond Thorpe. I lost friends and associates then also and it gives me comfort, honor and hope to be able to give back in this small way. From what I have read here, Thorpe will have a significant reputation to live up to, and we will all see that he measures up.

Alexis,
I too am one of many of your father's friends from college. As others have written, he truly was a special person. He was blessed with intelligence, good humor and kindness especially to those less fortunate. Interestingly, he spent very little time talking about his good deeds. He understood that action speaks louder than words. He was a model to us all and we all miss him soooooooooooo much. I think about him almost every day. Since September 12, 2001 I have used 'THORPE' as my computer password typing those letters 10 to 15 times a day for eight years. I estimate that I've typed the name Thorpe about 25,000 times and every time I think of him. His memory and spirit will always be with us and I can promise you that he is looking over with the greatest care and affection that any father could possibly have for his daughter. I hope you'll take that knowledge with you where ever you go. I wish you all the best and look forward to the possibility of meeting you some day.
