My heart is saddened and dismayed to find out that my first love has passed away. At only 36 he was taken from this world. There are so many things I could say about Richard Cooper Crosby- both good and bad. But for now, through tears of sadness and disbelief I will suffice it to say... I loved you with all my heart, thought we would grow old together - our separating was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, but I wish you were still here to be my friend. A little part of me has died with you. Like never before I choose to believe in God and Heaven and I pray that you are there. Goodbye Richard.
