I would like to say that I am so sorry for your lost. We come to the lake on the holidays in the summer. Memorial day, July 4th, and Labor day. I loved talking with Richard, and Charlie. He would always find me a slip for my boat. No matter how busy he was. And was always smiling. He was such a nice young man. I know he will be missed by many.

I didn't know Richard very well but we are in a class now at Tech and we worked on a group project together. I always enjoyed talking with him and could see the drive and motivation he had to succeed. He was a very happy and mannered young man! He always opened the door for the young ladies in our class and did it with a smile on his face, that's hard to come by! I'm very sorry for your loss and your family will be in my prayers,
Sincerely with deepest sympathy,
Sarah Elizabeth Walker

My heart goes out to you and all the family. Richard was such a joy to be around. He always spoke to me no matter where I saw him at. He would come down the hall here at work when he was in 4-H and always stick his head in my office and say something funny. I remember him at Brian's birthday parties when they were young-his hair just shinned.May God be with you and comfort you in the days ahead.

We have the best students anywhere and the loss of one of them breaks my heart. I try my best to let students know we are here for them if they need us.

Richard sat in front of me in Sociological Theory. I'm so sorry to hear about his death. He seemed like a decent guy and it was surprising to hear about this news. Although I don't know the details, I hope he didn't suffer and my sympathies are with you.

I cannot believe it has been a year. It seems like yesterday we were just meeting. You meant the world to me and I will miss you every day and hoping that one day, we shall meet again. I loved when we first met. We were at West Town Mall and we went to Chilis to eat. You were just a gentlemen to me and I thought you were so charming! I love you and goodbye for now!
