    My deepest sympathy go out to your family. I remember how kind Richard was. Melissa and I spent a lot of time together during our teenage years. I remember how much she loved her big brother. I could tell he adored her. That bond was very special to see. Richard was full of talent and I can remember what a great chef he was. My condolences go out to your family. I am so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Nina Canipe Raddatz
