Memories of Richard
I didn't know Richard, but his picture made me write this. Richard was in the same room as my sister Carolann. It was God's will to take you and my sister, and all the other little angels. I know you are looking down and watching all of the survivers you all left behind. They were left here for a reason - to tell the story of OLA fire. They are our angels on earth.

I found this memorial page by chance looking up my grandmother's name. I remembered that my father had a brother who lost children in a school fire in the 1950s. I also realized that the grandmother listed here was mine as well, and the others were relatives of my father. I always wondered who those children were. God Bless.
