I want to thank everyone for their generous contributions. We raised over $500. The county people were at the court on Monday, Sept 9, 2008 locating a spot to plant the tree and the marker to memorialize Richie. The County would not allow a larger plaque with room for multiple names so the memorial will be similar to the existing memorial for Joe Marlin. I will add photos here once there is something to take pictures of.
I also found out that Jim Packer plans to use the funds we have raised to add another bench to the gazebo on which we can add memorial name plates. But I think we still need to raise some additional funds to be able to do that.
