Say "Yes" Today

Post a memory

"In Loving Memory of an amazing Son, Brother, Cousin, Nephew, and Best Friend to so many people."

From the moment my son took his first breath, I knew that he was an unbelievable blessing to me. Richie or as I called him, my Baby Boy, was not only my first born child, he was my best friend, a third of my heart, my shining light and spark in my world. He never met a stranger, made us laugh until we cried, was smart(and didn’t mind telling us he was), was a joker that loved playing tricks on everyone and was just the type of young man that if you were mad at him about something, you ended up telling him you were sorry in the end (even if it was his fault). Richie was the hardest working young man that made sure everything was done to perfection even if it meant he worked a few hours off the clock.He was always giving and was always putting others first no matter if it meant he was last. Through a loss of his cousin 10 months and one day before his accident, Richie told me once that if his life could save someone else’s brother, sister or cousin, that he wanted to do it. He always told us that when he left this Earth that it would be awesome and legendary. Now through his selfless wishes, his awesomeness and extraordinary legacy will continue on in others for generations to come.

Richie's sarcasm and wit always kept us (his coworkers) laughing. He was hard-working and dedicated. We will miss him so much.

I would ask him from time to time is he was running the store yet, and Richie would answer, not yet but soon.
