These two individuals are still in my thoughts and prayers.

I agree Elle! it defies logic.. Im sure this case would be solved, I follow as well. The truth always prevails and the families will be given peace..! We see it time in and time out, All you need is the one big break and its coming. Blessings and prayers to the families.rnHistory shows in cases like this, the victim(s) knows their killer(s) or the killer(s) was hired by someone that knows the victims.

I have followed this case from the day they disappeared. I check online often and have made suggestions to the SP. I did not know Richard or Danielle but at the time I was working for a newspaper and the story was big and stayed with me to this day. It is one I will never let go of. Last night I woke up with Danielle on my mind. I don't know why so this morning I checked to see if the case had progressed. I see it has not. How do two adults and a vehicle disappear without a trace? It almost defies logic yet it points to a well planned abduction.rnrnThere are no words I can say to ease the pain your family endures every single day. I am sorry for the loss to the families and the children of Richard and Danielle and I still hope for that miracle.

Remembering you today -- the day you were born. Happy Birthday, Richard. Think of you all the time and still can picture your face smiling away at something or other. Say hello to my brother (Joebay) up there with you in heaven.rnLove, Rosemarie

Happy Birthday buddy. It's your birthday week and Bruce is coming to town for 2 shows. What a perfect week it would be if you were only here. I know I'll feel you in the air this weekend and will think of you often, as I always do. While I think of so many things I'd like to say to you, Bruce always says it best. For you, my brother.rnrn"Now the hardness of this world slowly grinds your dreams away, makin' a fool's joke out of the promises we make.rnAnd what once seemed black and white turns to so many shades of gray. We lose ourselves in work to do and bills to payrnAnd it's a ride, ride, ride, and there ain't much coverrnWith no one runnin' by your side my blood brother.rnrnOn through the houses of the dead past those fallen in their tracks. Always movin' ahead and never lookin' backrnNow I don't know how I feel, I don't know how I feel tonightrnIf I've fallen 'neath the wheel, if I've lost or I've gained sight. I don't even know why, I don't know why I made this call, or if any of this matters anymore after all.

Hello Rich, Marge and Christine, we think of you all often and will never forget that day. Out thoughts and prayers are with you all and will keep praying for justice to be served and questions to be answered. Richie always loved my dad, you all did. I miss him very much too. I remember the get togethers at Aunt Roes as young ones and remember visiting the bakery after dad passed and how much Richie would smile at the mention of Joe Bay. Please if you need anything we r here. Elaine Maria Laura Joey and Carlo

Dear Petrone Family, Every single day my thoughts drift to Rich over something...sports, music, our daughters, baking, but usually it's something I know he'd have found hysterical.I still instinctively reach for the phone to share it with him. Man, I need to hear that laugh! I can only imagine the pain ya'll are dealing with. Well, I'm constantly thinking about and praying for the Family.Hope it helps a little. I just really miss my friend. joe b.

I just don't understand it, how could this happen?
Leon Robinson Jr, Monday, July 30, 2012
There used to be a light for all the world to see
rnA gleam and a sparkle
rnThat sprang from your heart and danced in your eyes
rnAn open window to your soul
rnAlong with your smile and your ready laugh
rnIt was the essence of you
rnFor years I loved that light in your eyes
rnBut now that light's a little dimmer
rnThe sparkle's not the same
rnYour eyes are a bit heavier
rnThey show the price that's paid
rnFor the love of a child.
Richard Petrone, Wednesday, June 27, 2012
I didn't know either Richard or Danielle, but I still - to this very day - do not forget them, their children, their families or friends. I hope and pray that one day this will be answered and you all given the peace that you need. In my thoughts and prayers.
Cheryl, Tuesday, June 26, 2012
I worked next door to Abiliene's for a few years at Fat Tuesday and remember this story well. Was always a major mystery. I used to love going there and having a few drinks after hours. I always remember hearing rumors about it. I even heard recently that a man from the Port RIchmond area that commited suicide left a note claiming responsibility for this crime. Of course this is just hearsay like all the rest, buts its amazing even to this day people still talk about it. Very bizarre. But I wish everyone connected to these two the best and hope they can get closure soon.
Mike, Thursday, June 14, 2012
Hi. I posted before a long time back. I can't remember when, but not knowing Richard or Danielle, this still touched me and I think of it time to time. I just wanted to let you know that the 'public' has not forgotten about this either. I will continue to pray. I'm a heads up kind of girl so nothing is impossible to me. rnrnThinking of you always, Family and friends.rnrnWeez.rnLouise BaderrnBroomall, PA

Brother Rich....as usual,I'm up in the middle of the night, thinking of ya'....Man, what I would trade just for one more of your phone calls...to hear that familiar "YOOO.."on the other line.Miss you tons, Bro....

Good morning Richard! I woke up today thinking of you --this time of the year is always so difficult -- so many bad thoughts and memories. But I know you are at peace - I know it. I feel it. You are looking down at us and wanting so to tell your family that you are happy - you are at peace. We love you and miss you - always. rnRosemarie

Dear Rich and Marge, rnYou and Richard are in my prayers every day. Today is tough, and it's hard to come up with the right words, but there are a lot of people sending you their thoughts, their prayers and their love to you, which matters more than words.rnPlease let me know if there is anything I can do for you.rnWith love from the Ballezzi family.rnRic Ballezzi Srrn

Petrone family,rnrnI just saw the story about your son on television and although it's little consolation my heart goes out to you and your family. I will pray for you Mrs. Petrone. Although I live in Ridley Park I had never heard of this case and your story and seeing this happen in a part of the city I love hit close to home. Although a kind word can never take away your pain I hope you find peace. rnrnSincerely, rnrnrnRay Richards
Ray Richards, Wednesday, February 8, 2012
Brother Rich, No matter how much time passes, not a day goes by that I don't think of you. You schooled me on a lot of things I wouldn't have known without you,and I try to copy your infectious spirit toward life. I miss SO MUCH picking up the phone & hearing "YOOO!!".It just sucks that I can't holla at ya'. OK, Grandpa...I know I'll see you one day soon. I'll bring the Crown Royal....
Joseph Binstead, Saturday, January 28, 2012
I knew Danielle a little and knew her brother John better. I remember them both as being beautiful people and kind. I never got to know Richard but I do know many people who did know him and I havent heard one negative word about him, even prior to his disappearance. I cant believe that there have not been any answers in this case. I pray very hard that some kind of peace and solace will find both the Petrone and Ottobre families and that someone will come forward and tell the truth about what happened that day.
