Who was Richard Severini? He was may things to the many people he came across. What was he to me? Simple.
He was a teacher and I the student.
He was a ear, and Voice, a strong voice. Solid in his actions and convictions. Just the right person, at the right time for a young man in his twenties. A man who wondered onto his job site lacking in confidence and belief himself. He allowed me to understand that I can accomplish most anything through effort, understanding and perseverance. Life lessons that became the foundation of what I would become. A confident and proud individual.
Who was Ritchie?
He was one of the titans of my life.
I can't express how much sorrow I feel, not just for myself but for everyone who knows and loved him. I even feel sorrow for those who never got a chance to meet him.. for they missed out on an incredible man.
I love you Ritchie, I miss you already.
