Rich was my supervisor for over two years. He was the best at that time and proved he was the best police officer on September 11, 2001. You will never be forgotten my friend.

Ritchie aside from your great career at the NYPD as a Detective you always shone in everything u did. I met u for first time as I started my career at DOI/TLC I.G. You were a wonderful mentor and friend. Wecworked for 1 year together and moved on to other jobs but were friends for the next 15 years because that is who u were (I really miss our summer BBQ's). God bless you in Heaven as he blessed us who knew you and the people u so fearlessly served. It was an honor to work and know you. I Think of u every day my friend.

Hi Richard,

As soon as September rolls around and the sky is that brilliant blue that fall brings, I start thinking about all of you that lost your lives.

I believe there are angels among us, we don't see them, they have no shape or sound, but there are there watching over us and I believe you are one of those angels.

Rest in peace dear Sir and know you are remembered.

To the family and loved ones of Investigator Richard Moore and his fellow investigators and most especially to Richard:

Mere words seem insignificant to honor your heroism and courage which will never be forgotten. On this the fifth anniversary month of the tragic devastation wreaked upon our nation, those brave men and women who lost their lives safeguarding others are remembered and revered.

May your spirit continue to soar and your memory continue to inspire. Your family had to endure losing a beloved hero and how I wish they had not had to endure this tragedy.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect and gratitude for the distinquished service Richard gave to his community and country, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on September 11, 2001.

You are not and will never be forgotten. You and the other brothers we lost that day are HEROES and will be remembered forever! Rest high on the streets of Heaven!

Dear Richard:
I finally figured out why we police officers wear our badges on the left side, just above our hearts. Because our honorable and noble profession of protecting those who cannot protect themselves is right from the heart...done with love and compassion. And that, sir, is what you displayed on 11 September 2001...honor, love, and compassion. Hence, I keep my promise to you, in writing this reflection.
Your sacrifice will NEVER be allowed to be forgotten. In giving your life in exchange for trying to save others, you kept our solemn oath..."to serve and protect", and made us all proud. President Lincoln once said, "...that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom", and because of the sacrifices made by all of you that horrible day, America, and Americans all, are now fully cognizant of the silent deadly cancer of terrorism. Our freedom has been reborn with the renewed commitment of our military and law enforcement to do whatever, wherever, whenever, however, it takes to keep our homeland safe and free, from enemies foreign and domestic. By becoming aware, we are more diligent than ever, in protecting our fellow countrymen. All because of the sacrifices borne by you and the rest.
On behalf of all of your fellow officers still here, thank you for the courage, dedication, tenacity, and the will you displayed. May Almighty God hold you close to His heart, your family in His sight, and may He ease the suffering that your family has to endure. Rest in peace now, for we have the watch. Amen
