You will never know how much you are missed. You meant so much to us and sometimes not everyone knew how to express their feelings of love to you. Now that reality is setting in I know you will never come home to find out how proud we are of you. You were way above your years in many ways and maturing into a fine young man anyone would be proud of having as a son and brother.

In honor of the anniversary of 9/11 I chose Richard Pearlman's name off of the list of victims and decided to do something in his memory. I'm asking classmates and teachers at my school as well as other people in my life to donate money which I will then send to the Forest Hills Ambulance Corps. I'm looking to make contact with his family to get permission to use his name in my fundraising.

I'm very sorry about what happened. You were so young and you had so much to look forward in life. I'm pretty sure you were the youngest, and you risked your life everyday for the people you love, and for what you love to do. I'm sorry that your life had to end so fast. I appreciate all you did. Even though I didn't know you, I'm sure you were an amazing person. You obviously had to be to be doing what you did for this country.

To Mrs. Pearlman and your Dear Family

You were my son Ryan's pre-K teacher in 2010. I remember talking with you on a class trip that year and you spoke so highly of your son Richard and I could see how much love and admiration you had for your children. And then, a year or two later I met you in the supermarket and you told me what had happened to Richard. I was heartbroken for you and think of you every 9/11, most especially this year on the anniversary. I hope your hearts will find peace in knowing what a hero and exceptional human being your son was. I am in complete awe of his bravery, even at such a young age. God bless you all.
