REMEMBRANCES

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 11/11/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear PFC Richard Henry Tissier, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    I didn't know Richard well, but he was in one of my classes at Taft High School. He was a handsome, quiet, nice guy that was kind to everyone. I do remember what a talented artist he was. You will never be forgotten. RIP Rich.

    I was in the eighth grade, and I would go to Harry's candy store, on the corner of my block, and there you were hanging
    out with the crowd...My heart would skip a beat, my stomach all in knots, and you never knew the effect you had on me. I was just 14 years old, and you were my hero then...I could never speak, because for me you were bigger than life... You never knew how I felt, you never even knew I existed...You never knew me. Yet, the first thing I did 30 years later when the world changed with technology, and I got a computer, I searched, with the memories in my minds eye, still fresh, although life has brought me way beyond back then, and then
    I found YOU WERE TRULY A HERO! You died in defense of what we all believe is dear, and so the feelings are still there, and
    and the thoughts of you have enhanced ten fold, I will think of you always as my ANGEL! Hoping now that as my Angel! Maybe You do Know me.........

    Richie was my neighbor in Highbridge. He was a wonderful person who had a kind word for everyone. We lost him too soon.
  • WE ALL LOST

    Posted on 4/8/99 - by Jan Pasternak
    I went to Wm. Howard Taft High School in the Bronx with Richard. We gratuated in 1965. Richard was sweet, sensitive and kind. He had a beautiful smile and the most gorgeous green eyes anywhere. Two years later we lost a talented artist and a wonderfull human being in a war we never should have entered in the first place if our goal was not to win. It's hard to come to grips with the facts that Richard never saw the many wonders developed during the years since 67 (oh what he would have created on a computer!), he never got to share his creativity which would have given pleasure to so many, he would never have offspring to pass down to and the world would never experience the pleasure he would have provided. . Good-bye Green Eyes. You won't be forgotten, not by me.
