“Hi Rick - It has been one year today that we last talked. I still talk to you every day, it's not as much fun. I miss our "lively" chats, but now I'm usually right. 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.
“Michelle and Family
I'm so sorry to hear about your Father. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your Family.
“Dearest Janice and Family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Not only is he a loss to you, but to the rest of us who knew him. He is a rare breed. Kind, giving, helpful and had a huge heart!

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...
“Janince, I am so sorry to hear about Dick he was fun to be around.
“JANICE JUST HEARD ABOUT DICK. CANNOT BELIEVE THAT HE IS GONE. TALKED TO HIM AT THE CLASS REUNION. IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, PLEASE CALL ME AT WORK.
“Our deepest sympathies are with you all. We looked forward to seeing Dick in our office monthly.
“Janice, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Dick. I've know Dick since NE Jr High Due to our names we sat next to each other in our classes back then. It was so good to catch up with him at our Class
reunion this fall. Life is just to short My prayers are with you and your 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.
