To the family of Richard L. Allen: I wish to extend my deep sadness for their loss. Seeing his picture on this site creates a truer reality than just seeing a name. May the family of Richard find peace, and hopefully they will draw strength from all of us who care.
Thank you for giving a life that had so much to give. Thank you for leaving a family, loved ones and going to God early. God was ready to take you, but was the world ready to give you up? Many would say no. They wanted you to stay, but you made the choice and God came and took you home.
My heart goes out to you, hero. I will forever remember September 11, 2001 and the courage you had when you risked your life for so many. May God bless you and accept you in his holy presence.
God bless you. Have a very peaceful place in heaven. You died to be a martyr. Jesus Christ is with you in heaven.
