Celebrating the life of Peter Richards
Thank you for signing Peter Richards's Guestbook
Scott, Mary Beth, Sally and Mrs. Richards,
I just found out and my stomach dropped! When I think of Pete, I see him as a 12 year old boy, who's body did not betray him and those cute little dimples! I'm so sorry for all that your family has gone through. Will say a prayer for him!
