  • I am so sorry to hear about Richie, we worked together at SNET. I remember one night we had to go to roodner court to install phones. I installed the phones while Richie sprayed the roaches at one point Richie yelled Hurry up Al the roaches are gaining on me. I had some real fun times with Richie and I will hold some of our memory’s for the rest of my life. Again you have our deepest condolences for your entire family.
