I am so sorry to hear about Richard's passing and at such a young age.  Richard and I went to two dances together at PAHS during our Senior year, the Christmas Dance and the prom.  It was thanks to this shy quiet and brave guy that I got to go at all.  I will be forever thankful that he thought enough about me to have asked me to go.  My condolences go out to his family and friends who I am sure miss him very much.  I have often wondered about him, and will keep him in my prayers.
