Richie you are a kind soul and will be dearly missed. You had more courage than most. You fought a battle everyday and stayed that kind gentle soul. I wish MD did not exist. I wish you were still here and were able to celebrate your birthday. I know people are sad now but hopefully as time passes the memory of your big beautiful smile will bring a sense of joy for knowing you. Love you!

I will miss Richie forever. I do take a little comfort in thinking that if there is something that comes after this life, then Richie and my Mother are hugging, right now.

Love, Aunt Sue
