Dear Marge & Rich,rnI wonder if you have ever tried contacting the Long Island Medium? I know you must have had a million psychics involved, but she always seemed authentic to me. I have followed your son's case from day one. I am from So. philly. I offer you my deepest condolences on the loss of your precious son and his lovely friend. May God Bless and keep you as he holds you in the palm of his hand.

Dear Petrone Family, I am now watching the program Save My Bakery and was so saddened to hear about your son. I am a mother of two daughters and can not imagine how horrible this must be and how it never seems to go away or get better like people tell you. Please don't give up. I promise you I will pray to Saint Jude for you tonight and keep you in my prayers forever. All of you need to be the support system for your granddaughter. She seems to be a little firecracker and has a lot of spirit and with her and all the new changes coming your way I hope that everything goes well with your Bakery and you stay in business and keep passing it down generation to generation. Again, my heart felt condolences for all your pain. Please hang in there and don't stop praying. God works in mysterious ways and if you don't give up you have a reason to keep going every day. God bless you all and give you the peace of mind and closure that you are seeking. Sincerely,Lenore

I am a South Jersey native and moved back to South Jersey for about 6 months back in 2005, shortly after the disappearance. I check the website a few times a year and I always hope one day news will break there is information on what happened. I cannot imagine the feelings both families must have. My heart goes out to both families. Sending positive vibes to you all.rnrnJulie

To Richard Petrone's family,rn I've never gone to a website like this. I never forgot about your story since it began, never stopped thinking about the families,the children robbed of their parents. It's tragic and infuriating to the public, for you it is inhumane torture. If only people caring was powerful enough to move this mountain - I wish it could be done. Richard is almost exactly my age, I think of my kids and parents - my heart breaks for you. It doesn't fix anything, but please know there are those of us who think of you and wish you love and courage. rn Kristin

This story touched my heart ten years ago. Over the past ten years I have thought about this story many, many times- it has never left my mind. Over the past ten years I have never forgotten their names or faces or their families and all the hurt those who loved Richard and Danielle go through on a daily basis still today. As this uncomfortable anniversary rears it's ugly head another year- please know there are so many like me that are praying for your families to find the peace that you all deserve and need so much! Always in my heart, Emily

I'm encouraged by the recent news that Richie's case has been reopened. Anyone that knew him knows what really happened. Richard was a family man all the way. He would have never deserted his family, friends and most important, his daughter Angela who he loved more then anyone in the world. He had more friends then anyone I ever knew and I was blessed to be one of them. rnJustice will be served.rnrnLove, Chris

There is a saying "Time Heals All Wounds". I disagree. The wounds are still there. We are thinking of you today, Richard. We will never forget. I love you, Rosemarie

Whether its 10 years or 3,652 days ago, it feels like yesterday when this nightmare happened. Searching for you in woods, along rivers and in fields in this cold February weather. Trying to gather photos of you and make a tribute video because I didn't know what to do with myself in my private time of despair. Confused, frustrated and saddened, not knowing where you were or what happened. Following the advice of psychics because the FBI was turning up nothing. It still makes no sense to this day. The people that know and love you will always know that it was not your choice to leave this world. What an evil senseless act, for anyone to decide to end someone else's life, and get away with it. The only consolation, is that if I can remember that horror so vividly, I can also remember the great times we had as well. You were such a good man, father, son, cousin, uncle and best friend. I always be grateful for the gift of your friendship...and no one can ever take that away.rnrnI love and miss you, my buddy.rnTP

I sit here with my fingers on the keys willing them to type something that will ease your pain. They fail me. As I read over the posts from previous years and now the new ones I am filled with such anger and sorrow that it tests my faith. I know this is all God's plan but it makes no sense to me. All I can do is continue to pray and hope he will answer. My heart hurts for you today and everyday.

i used to work at gillanes restaurant basically right next door from viking pastries. i was a few years younger then richie but became pretty friendly. he was really friendly with all the guys that worked at gillanes when i worked there. actually ended up goin to a couple of shows together cause of similiar taste in music. he was a very sweet, cool, funny guy but what i most remember about him which stayed with or without this tragedy was an image i saw many times of him walking his daughter into the shop or i believe if my memory serves me he had a place on top of the shop. he would have his hand on her back and he always came across to me as such a loving father. i didnt know richie in any real personal way but he struck me as a man of character and talented too. my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends and loved ones.

I was moved to tears this evening when I was on 202 and saw this couple show up on the billboard. Then tonight on the news. I think of them often and pray that they will be found. My prayers are with your families, I pray this will all be solved. Yours in Christ, JoAnne.

I have followed this mystery from the first time I heard it on the news in 2005. It is beyond the scope of belief and understanding.rnTo both families I send to you my heartfelt sympathy. I have never been nor ever will be one to understand the evil deeds of others. I hope you continue to be strong and believe the answer is out there somewhere. I send to you my warmest thoughts and hope you find answers and peace.

I haven't been on much of this past year. I suppose I didn't have too much to say. We took a ride on august 29th to Asbury Park. Just your Mom and I. We strolled the boardwalk and watched the ocean. Had some lunch. Shed some tears. Remembered that day you came into our lives. We still miss you so.
