As most of the people who posted a prayer, I did not know Richard. I am his first cousin Danielle. Although I don't ever remember meeting my cousin, I have heard wonderful things about him and I went to his memorial a few years ago. I am writing this on the 3rd aniversary of the attack on the WTC. I was only 11 when he died and even though i didn't really know who he was I was extremely distraught. I just hope that wherever he is, he is in a better place.

I did not know Richard, but I met his parents, Albert and Veronica while on vacation in the Dominican Republic in December 2003. Through my conversations with them, I gained a much better understanding of the pain and anguish that the families of the victims of 9/11 have experienced, and will continue to experience for the rest of their lives. I am a better person for having met these two wonderful people. My prayers are with Veronica and Albert Caggiano and rest their family.


For the poeople who were kind enough to post a prayer for Richie, I'd like to tell you what a wonderful person he was. I did know Richie for half of my life and only grew to love and need him more as the years went by. You had to love him. He made you laugh even through the hardest times. Life was so beautiful through his eyes, even the grayest days. That was truly a gift he had. He was one of the most thoughtful people I've ever met. He remebered everything about you and always used what he knew about you to make you feel good. His family is just as beautiful. What a loss to this world and my life.

I did not know Richard. I only know what it feels like to lose. The attack affected us all, and as I see Richards name, I know that a family loved him, friends adored him, and I have to weep, I just pray he's happy.
Love and Memories Live on forever.


I unfortunately did not know Richard. I received a candle with his name on it at a remembrance ceremony at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY on the one-year anniversary. I spent my time there thinking about Richard and his family. I was blessed not to have lost anyone personality in the attacks. And I am now thankful that I have the name of someone whom I can mourn for and a family for whom I can pray for. I can feel in my heart that Richard was a wonderful person and that he is so badly missed. Please know that I will never forget his name and that he and his family will forever be in my heart and prays.


I am not sure if this will be read by any of Richie's family members. If so, please know that I pray for each of you every day.
I met Richie and Jude in a Bay Ridge bar with my then College roomates, years ago. The two of them kept us all amused and smiling for the entirety of the evening.
Richie became friends with one of my roomates. He called our house regularly over the years and became friends with all 5 of the girls in the house. He'd call and leave funny messages on our machine about once a week. If I answered the phone and sounded down, he'd ask why, listen and make me laugh hard.
My roomates and I made monthly trips to Bay Ridge, just to visit Richie. He was always worth the trip.
He talked so frequently and lovingly of his family. He bragged incessantly about his Mother's cooking! His love for each of you was so evident.
I think about your family and the great loss you are suffering daily. I pray often and hard for all of you.
God Bless
