Shortly before you left, you said you weren't going to turn 60. You were going to "be 29, just like mom". You can be 29 forever, but, you will always be my OLDER brother. I have so many great memories of you. We use to stay up late and watch Now Explosion and Midnight Special. And then the paper...

I am very truly sorry to hear about Richard. I worked with him at the Casino. He was a wonderful man, always smiling and fun to talk with. He will be missed terribly. He won't be forgotten.

He was one of the best co-workers, always going the extra mile...in the towing industry everyone is expected to do a little more than what is asked and he always did with no gripes. Although, I knew he worked at the Casino, I would never visit him...he...

Ballentine family,
I'm very sorry for your loss. Richard was one of the kindest men I've ever known. The only person who was wiliing to help me out when I needed a car. That's how he was though, always lending a helping hand to anyone he knew needed it. Thats a tough quality to find in people today. He wasn't just my supervisor at Mystic he was my friend. He will be deeply missed by me and my family. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.
