Richard was always such a nice guy!  Always had a pleasant word for everyone and a smile on his face - though he was facing illness even as a teen.  Such a loss . . .

I remember Richard becoming seriously ill during high school as well. It seemed not much was said about it. It's too bad we weren't as open and supportive about medical crises then as we are now. It sounds like Richard had a lot of love in his too- short life.

Richard was special, I don't remember ever hearing a negative word about him. You could look into his eyes and see the love that he had for others. I was very fortunate to live across the street from him and knew that I was welcome whenever I went over to visit him and his family. He is greatly missed.

Richard was a great friend and I miss him.  I met Richard in Junior High and we developed a bond that lasted throughi High School, college and during his post college years.  When I got married in 1985, I asked Richard to be my best man, and Janet (his wife to be) made the trip out to Tahoe.  Ironically, the place where they had lunch after landing at SFO, and which Richard said was the ugliest brownest place he saw in CA, was where he and Janet moved after finishing college.  Vacaville.  Our families would periodically get to see each other when we were travelling up North or they were in San Diego (where we were living at that time).   Slowly and sadly Richard's health deterioriated and the last time I saw him before passing, he was confined to a wheel chair.   I attended Richard's funeral in 2005 and am happy I had the opportunity to officially say goodbye to my old friend.  He was a good soul...a lot of fun to be around...a great father and husband, and someone that each of us will remember with a smile on our face.
