Richie was my childhood friend. I went back to my old neighborhood today to pass by my old house. I had to pass by Richie's house and I saw Mrs. Owen(Richie's mother) so I stopped and said hello and asked about Richie. I hadn't been in that area since 1996 and she told me what happened to Richie. I was so deeply saddened. Richie was always a great kid. I remember riding big wheels with him, then skateboards, then bikes, and eventually having our first cars. Richie was the kindest kid I remember knowing. We lost touch shortly after becoming adults. I will always remember us as kids playing in the front yard. My hearts goes out to your family Richie. My father died when I was three years old, and my mother always told me that the Lord takes the good ones when they're young. Richie was one og the good ones.
