August 29, 2016: Richard’s 47th Birthday
Eternity. Always was always would be. Time with no beginning and no end. And we are simply grains of sand. But for a brief flicker we come alive. We matter to some. We play a part in these dreams we call life. The length of time we are here doesn’t matter. It is but an instant. But in that instant lies all that life has for us. All the joy and sorrow, pain and pleasure. All the people we know and love. All the people we helped to create. All the things we do to make to make each day our own. All the little things we did in all the uncounted minutes of our lives. These are the things that count. These are the things that those of us who are still here remember.

You may remember me a friend of yours from St Joe’s. My fiance Marie and I visited you in South Philly and met your wife Marge and the baby, Richard Jr. sometime after graduation. Last time we saw each other if memory serves was at your bakery in South Jersey. At the time my family and I were living in Marlton. Woke up yesterday around 3am and for some reason was thinking about you. Rich you were one of the nicest most thoughtful and considerate guys I ever met and for you to be facing such a terrible situation tragedy is just unimaginable. I am praying that someone comes forward to solve this crime and gives you a chance to heal in the near future. Your dear friend Gary.
Gary Marr, March 6
