Not sure what to say?

When one of our shipmates takes his final voyage it becomes a time when we reflect on all the good times we shared together. Dick was a wonderful guy who made all his shipmates aboard the USS Perry feel special. We always had lot of fun hooking up at our ship's reunions and reminiscing the good old days when we were young and invincible. Dick may be gone but he will never be forgotten by all the shipmates having the privilege to have known him. Smooth sailing my friend. Steve Silk

It was an honor to know Rich Linden, even though I only worked with him for a year at TJX. Every day he would stop by for a minute or two and say hello and ask me about my day or weekend. Just talking to him for a couple minutes a day made every day that much better. He really was a special man and I'll never forget him. He will be missed by anyone lucky enough to know him.

To Linden Family,

I worked with Dick at Mutual Bank 76-84 and again at The TJX Companies (2004 -2011).
He was such a nice man,
My condolences and prayers to his family.

I worked with Rich at TJX. Many nights I worked late and Rich would come by to lock the office doors. We would talk about our families and any plans we had for the weekend. I loved to hear his stories about the Navy, his band, his love of jazz, his weekends in NH with Sue, her husband and Tori, his vacations with Scott, Tori's riding meets, visiting his sister and his countless meetings out with friends. He lived his life fully and blessed many people around him by just being Rich/Dick.

Rip my friend I worked with dick at liberty mutual we had some great times he was a true friend you will be missed!!!
