Richard Petrone Jr: Missing Since February 19, 2005
Last seen: 3,593 days ago (9 years, 10 months, 3 days)

It's an early morning on the boardwalk in Ocean City... Sitting here watching the ocean & listening to my music I always feel closer to you... Soon it will be 1000 days without you, a third birthday without you, 3 trips around the sun. ... Until that moment when my thoughts as I know them cease, I will imagine what that catch & so many other things will be like when I see you again.

Still no answers. But the circle of life goes on. There's a grandson now who will never hear the sound of your laughter or the warmth of your embrace. Much like your birth created our family, his birth has brought us all closer together. He is surrounded by love, especially the love of his parents. They are completely dedicated to his care and you would be so proud of the remarkable mother that Angela is. Young Timmy has brought a joy that has been missing for some time. We all look forward to his visits and the girls smother him with hugs and kisses. You did good. You did very good my son, and we will continue what you began.
