RIP, Bobby, to my best friend from Mrs. Levine's Kindergarten to Mrs.Freiday's 6th grade. I can still remember fondly the horseback riding we did weekly off Pinewood Ave, WLB and the first time I smoked a Cigarette in the woods where the Fountain Gardens are now.

I remember bobby from the green wave football team. he was the left guard, Sim was the right guard and I was the center. Whenever jerry Moser ran a QB sneek we would make a wedge. they could never stop that "V" up the middle. May The Lord give rest to his soul.
From Frani Cittadino (Picard) on November 3rd, 2014
Richie, you were one of my best friends growing up, especially since I almost killed you. You were Godfather to my oldest daughter, Peggy, and you stood in for Tom when we Baptized my niece, when Tom was in Viet Nam. We had some really great, fun times. You are forever my heart!! Love always, R. I. P., Frani
From Alex D'Ambrosio on February 5th, 2015
I worked with Richie for twelve years after I returned to this area.
I can still envision him dragging himself into work, slowly walking down
the long halls of the junior high. He showed great determination and will all those years despite his chronic illness. He fought bravely but it was a battle that he could not win. Rest in peace my old friend.
The love of my life from the moment I noticed her in the cafeteria of LBHS in September of 1964. Never to be forgotten.
From Judith Wigdortz (Davis) on November 24th, 2014
I have such clear and wonderful memories of marching with Carmeline in the color guard. Another memory is that one of her sisters styled my hair for my wedding 45 years ago. Carmeline and Dennis were a perfect match!
I lived across the street from Margie when we were kids . . . MacArthur Avenue. We used to love playing kickball in the street . . . I shall never forget Margie, her wonderful sense of humor, something from out of Little LuLu (which I will probably get wrong) But, i think it was Tubby, that said, "Run for your lives, run for your lives . .. the pudding is out of control! . . . . It cracked her up every time . . . Love you, Margie!

My memories of Con also go back to football. When we were sophmores, one of Con's cleats fell off and left a sharp post than no body realized. We were in scrimage and Jerry Moser (QB) called a running play over center (my position). I made the block on the right guard and my right leg remained extended. Con ran over it and opened my calf with 17 stitched to close it. He always remembered this all thru HS and felt bad. As the Senior fullback he would run over right or left guard which Sim or Bobby and I double teamed. I think Con was the leading rusher in our Senior year for over 7+ yards per carry. RIP, Con
jerry was my quaterback on the green wave. I was the center. I was 6'5". jerry was not. For him to pass over me he would but his hand on the small of my back and do a jump pass to Stan Lewis. Our best paly was the QB "goose play"...Sim , Bobby and I would wedge for him and we Always got the first down!. Rip jerry!

I remember in 8th grade we were playing football at Flannigan's field in North Long Branch. You tried to tackle me and I broke loose and you got my heal in the mouth. It chipped your front tooth. I felt bad about that tooth all thru HS for 5 years RIP, Steve

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am nor there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow:
I am the diamond glints on snow.
1 am the sunlight on ripened grain.
1 am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
1 am the soft srars that shine at night.
Do not srand by my grave and cry;
I ain not there. I did not die.
