Rich and Marge, I have always purchased wonderful things from your bakery in Ardmore. My husband and I are loyal customers.
Since the disappearance of your precious son, it doesn't feel the same to me, when I enter your bakery. I feel very sad, wanting to put my arms around both of you. I just want to hug you and tell you, that I think of your son, Richie frequently. As parents, ourselves, we can only imagine the pain in your hearts. You are in our prayers and in our hearts.

Richie & Marge,
It's been 35 years since I saw you last. I regret not staying in touch. Looking back, it's clear how important your early influence was in giving me a sense of direction and family values, especially at a time as a teenager when I really needed it. Now, with my own kids expressing similar needs, my brief time with 'Richie, Joe, Marge & Rosemarie at The Bakery in East Brunswick' always gives me a remarkably positive experience to draw from and never fails to make me smile.
With that said, Social Networking is a double edged sword that stabbed me in the heart last night when I learned of your tragedy while attempting to research your location. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss and the pain you endure. My memory of Richard Jr is brief, but no less special. Richie - you'll recall when I was playing hockey with him in the basement of your South Philly home. It was so much fun and I'll always remember it. As a parent, I just can't imagine the pain. As a friend, I wish I could shoulder it, if only for a brief time.
To Richie & Marge and all the people who are left devastated by the tragedy of Richard and Danielle, I offer my thoughts and prayers and hope you'll continue to find the strength to carry on in support of your precious children and families. Please accept my deepest felt sympathies...

I saw the episode on Disappeared and my heart just aches for you both. As a mother of young children I can't even imagine your pain... I sat and prayed for you last night, Richard's mother, that you somehow can find moments of peace in your daily life. I will continue to pray for you.....

Your family will forever be in my prayers. May you find closure, even though it seems impossible. I hope that the exposure from ID brings the answers you are seeking.
Mayra Burns, Thursday, July 13, 2017
I also saw the Disappeared episode about your son, and I am so, so sorry for your loss. Like other posters, I very much hope that you are able to reconcile with Danielle's family, and support each other through a pain that few understand. I pray this new publicity brings answers. Both families are so deserving of them.

I just wanted to post after watching the episode on the ID channel and was in tears the whole time. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I'm a mother myself and I cannot imagine what you and your family are going through. I am pretty convinced that Danielle's ex husband had something to do with this. It's awful suspicious that he was 50 miles away and on the night he was supposed to have custody of his young son? And now the police are thinking a murder for hire? How convenient? I will continue to keep your entire family in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong and one day someone will come forward. They usually do.

Oooh, I am so terribly sorry for your loss and continuous pain, not knowing, I cannot start to imagine what both your families are going through. I wish and will pray that you do find one day what did happened so you can grieve your loss find some type of closure. I will also pray so both your families can reunite, pain can drive people to desperate measure and your children did love each other.

3 or 4 years ago I read about this story and the case moved me from the beginning, I always remember and I think of this couple. Strength for families. Hugs from Brazil.

Just got done watching the ID Channel, I'll be praying for answers for both family's. I live in Sacramento ca, you're story touches my heart from here.
Reyna, Sunday, June 18, 2017
I was watching the ID television program and saw this story. I am so very sorry for both involved.I can only imagine how the "not knowing" must be beyond painful.I am praying for you and hope you have answers sooner than later. God Bless. Kay

Someone knows something... two people do not just disappear. This was setup. These two did not have anything in their background that would make you think they were into anything that would have caused them to be murdered! She was getting a divorce. Im almost POSITIVE this is were the truth lies! Follow the links! This smells like her ex-husband might have hired someone to get rid of her...I do not care if he was 50 miles away. To me that is so convient! This happened because someone close to them did this!!! My deepest condolences to the family i just am soooo annoyed that nothing has been done yet to bring this families closure! No way in the world do two people and a huge truck just disappear!!! No way!

Hello, I just watched your son's story on Disappeared. I'm so incredibly sorry for your pain of the "unknown". During the course of my viewing, one thought continuously ran through my head; the truck must be in a body of water as a result of an accident. It was February. Does anyone know what the weather conditions were that evening? Was there a particularly icy, hazardous stretch of roadway along the course of their intended 25 mile drive? I'm also curious to know if there were any custody issues with Danielle's son at the time of her divorce. Prayers that both families receive the resolution they so desperately need for closure soon.

It saddens me for both families that this remains unsolved....someone somewhere knows something...probably someone close to either Richard or Danielle....I ache for both families and Angela and Joe Jr...God Bless you all...I feel this was almost definitely planned by someone who might have known they would be together that night....It was heartbreaking to watch this on Disappeared.. I was in tears by the end of the episode...so tragic.
HP, Thursday, June 15, 2017
Watched this last night really mind boggling. The only thing I can think of to ask at this point is has anyone ever considered a Physic? My prayers are with both families, I hope one day you find the answers and I just pray that you will find that answer soon.
Suzi, Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Just watched the episode of "Disappeared" with your son and his friend on it. I pray that you will get the answers that both of the families need. I also pray that Angels will help and guide both of the families through this tragic time.rnAlso, I think your son is cute. Susan
Susan, Monday, June 12, 2017
Such an incredibly sad story. I can't help but think the truck went off the road. I think the simplest answer is probably the correct one in this case. Hoping for answers soon.
Amy Hudak, Monday, June 12, 2017
I just wanted to send hopes and prayers from Niagara Falls, NY. I am so sorry for the grief that you have come to endure and I hope that someday you get some answers. Watching your story on the ID channel saddened me deeply. Forever in my thoughts and prayers!

Richard -- I dread this time of year ... the month and date you were taken from us. I know you are up there watching us day in and day out. That is what I believe. That is what makes me feel good and can live with that thought. Love you always, Rosemarie
Rosemarie Bonavitacola, Sunday, February 19, 2017
I don't know this couple... But this story has been boggling my mind for years. I think about this couple and I feel a sudden sadness because there is no closure. How can a couple and a truck just vanish into this air? The eerie thing is. I feel like I seen them somewhere before. As soon as the story broke.. I said wow. They look familiar. Hence why I can't get this story out of my head... I am glad I found this page because it comforts me...I feel in my heart since day one that this couple is still alive. I pray they make it home to their friends and family. God Bless.

Always in my prayers for closure for your family...Gone, but never forgotten...

Margie and Rich, as the day comes closer I turn the calendar to March so I don't have to see the date. I can't even begin to imagine what you feel every day. Margie when I saw you at T's funeral you looked so much better and then as we talked I could see the pain take over your face. I feel so inadequate with anything I say. I don't think time heals pain I think you just get used to it. I try to choose to think that Richie and T are now our angels and they want us to know they are with us and try to get some kind of comfort from that and know they are in such a wonderful place and have saved a place for us. Again I sit here and am at a loss at what to say. Just know that there are so many people who's life Richie touched and we will never, ever forget him. I will talk to you on the 19th. Be strong, know that so many others are remembering the wonderful person your son was and feel the comfort of knowing that he is with us every second and watching over us. Love You, Diane
