I missed you the night the Phillies won the pennant just as I missed you when Bruce played the full Born to Run show at the Spectrum. I miss you everytime I hold your grandson just as I do every time I see Angela's face. I miss the laughter you brought to your Mother's eyes. I miss the enthusiasm you brought to all your dreams. I miss the spirit you carried with you in all you did. I miss your passion, your intensity, your smile, your grace. I miss your music, hell I even miss your moods. I miss your wonder at discovering new things. I miss you more as time goes by and the list of special moments without you grows. I miss you my Son. Not a day goes by without the hurt reminding me of the love I miss, so especially today, thank you for the gift of your love.

Richard's Grandson

Timothy Richard, born September 23, 2009 to Angela Petrone and Timmy McNally. "Angela and Timmy welcomed their son Timothy Richard into the world today, ironically on Bruce Springsteen's 60th birthday. Mother and baby are both doing well."

August 29, 2009: Richard's 40th birthday

Broken hearts and broken souls, shadows of what used to be. Not a day dawns without a tear in memory. Your heart, your spirit, your smile, your soul, the way your joy could fill a room are memories that carry us thru the day. The past is a comfort, a treasure to wrap our hearts around. But soon reality turns our thoughts to the loss...of a father, leaving his beautiful Angela to face a future without the love and strength only a dad can give. Of a brother, who never forgot what it meant to be a big brother to his sisters. Of a son, who made us a family and taught us what it meant to love someone more than you ever imagined. Of a young man on the verge of his true future. As your parents we could sense how you were pulling it all together, and its that loss and how your future was stolen that adds to the pain. But none of that can dim the memories...and so today we will gather to celebrate you and the joy you brought to all of us...our lives are better for you having been here. We love you...we miss you...happy birthday sweet prince ... Mom and Dad

of Richard's Disappearance

Searching for Answers Four Years Later
The investigation that followed involved officials from two states and the FBI, but no one has been able to answer the question of what happened to the New Jersey couple. Officials believe the two may have been the victims of a murder-for-hire plot, but will not say why. The couple has been pronounced dead, but the investigation still remains active. "When it comes to murder, we donít give up," Klaver said.
