Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Richard Dennis Joy, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Your Name Was Read Aloud Among Those Soldiers. You Have Not Been Forgotten! Rest in Peace, Dear Brother.

My cousin Ricky

I read another post here from someone younger than Rick who got to tag along with Rick when he was a boy. That was Ricky all right. He was the kindest older cousin. Our families would usually gather at White Horse Beach in August. When I finished first grade I couldn't read but was promised I could go to second grade if I learned. Every day Rick would read with me. He got me to do this by offering to take me fishing. I imagine there were activities at the beach that would interest a teenager more than teaching his little cousin to read! To this day reading and fishing are my favorite activities. I named my son after Rick; he was the greatest. Anna if you see this be in touch.

My Husband

Rick was, for the short time we had together, a wonderful husband. He was loving, caring and funny. He was everything to me: a best friend, provider, lover. He was taken away way too soon. We were only married three years. To this day I miss him.
