Richard Petrone Jr: Missing Since February 19, 2005

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... 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.
