R Kellz;

Brother this is rough, yet, I know the anguish of things for you are over. I recall the times when we would be in the smoke pit talking about the AINTS....lol...your Saints and the Browns. I know Jordyn is within your full watch and engulfed in your love. Prayers to you and your family bro each and everyday. My ultimate prayer is that the peace of Jesus transcends into the hearts and minds of all that were a part of your life and that your family carries your legacy within them each and everyday. Blessings!

Rich, when we found out that we were both members of the WhoDat Nation at Ft Dix it was an instant connection. Didn’t get to talk to much after rotating back to the World after the deployment but there always always some fun times cheering and complaining about the Saints on FB. God speed my friend.

Pool buddies for life. We had some really good times back at Fast Eddies. Nereza and I will miss your smiles and laughs. We love you bro! Condolences to the family especially Jordyn. We know that your dad thought the world of you. Remember, he will always be with you as long you keep him in your heart.

Rich, while our time together in Germany was short lived for NCOA, I can not thank for enough the conversations shared, the team work endured, and the wisdom you passed down to me. You were a true voice of reason, a rare thing in today’s society and military.

God speed my friend.

My brother, Kelly! I remember we would always argue about the Cowboys and Saints. Although, you generally won these match ups, I enjoyed the banter and fun we had with this. Brother, this is tough, but I know you are in a better place. You have impacted so many lives, keep looking down on those you love and protect them as they look out for Jordyn. One love! KJ

I miss you so terribly JR. I am sorry I cannot celebrate with you anymore time of us spent with Jordyn, Birthdays, Holidays, your accomplishments, your experiences and your travels, your jokes, your sense of humor, and your heart. Me being heartbroken is not even touching the depth of how sad I am. I have so much love for you. No parents should ever have to bury their child, ever.

Thank you for serving our country for 20 years in the US Air Force. You were an excellent Steward.

I love you forever Richie JR,
Love your Mom

Some of my favorite memories will always be getting messages full of new music to listen to, hearing about your world travels and of course your trip home where we all enjoyed a week together laughing, playing goofy golf, dinners and finally a trip to the beach as one big "family". You will always be family to us and we will miss you dearly. We love you. ~ Carlos, Mandy, Ben, Caleb & "Abuela" Francisca
To Sherri, Richie and Patrick- we love you all very much and will keep your family in our prayers.
