    Oh Richie! Where to begin. I’ve known you since I was little. You’re such a sweet and caring individual. You messaged me the day before the accident and I missed the message. It’s tearing me up inside. I adore you and thank you for the friendship! I’m blessed to have been given to the opportunity to know you! ❤️

    I loved Richie. I followed his exploits in high school football through his Dad, who was always so proud of his accomplishments. Richie worked with me in Augusta and brought his energy and sense of humor to our office. The last time I saw him at his sister’s wedding he embraced me and my wife, Angela, and said “you guys are family”. I can’t imagine the pain that Rich, Rhonda, and his family must be experiencing. The loss of a child is something that is almost impossible to accept and get by. I love this family, and they are constantly on my mind. I wish them God’s peace.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends. I had the privilege to meet Richie at my great nephew’s birthday party Kane Miller. His daddy is Nick. Richie was very nice to talk to and watching him with his boys I could tell a great daddy. Through this time of sorrow may Gods Grace cover you with comfort and strength. As always God will give you love💞🌹🙏
