"Bryan,
I'll never forget sitting in that room when the Marine walked in and told us one of us had to go out with the m.a.p. platoon that night and all of us just looked at each other. It could of been any of us in that vehicle manning that radio that night but you stepped up and did the job, Not a day goes by that I do not feel guilty for letting you go. I miss you brother.

"Where do i begin? I have so many memories of going to grandma's house and the thing I looked forward to most was going to Aunt Janie's and playing with Bryan and Pat! We used to hang out on that big huge rock in grandma's back yard or go down in the woods and just run and play as free as any children could! Even though time had distanced us, i thought of you all so often! I always had the greatest respect for Aunt Janie because she raised two of the most respectful, noble men!! You both will forever be in my heart and in my memory!! To my family, I love you and you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday!"
Carrie Huffman-Provost of Parkersburg, WV/USA

"I'll never forget growing up as a child with Bryan. He loved baseball and he loved Pete Rose. He always would slide into base HEAD FIRST, even if it wasn't a close play. This earned him the name WORM. I'll never forget when he spiked a volleyball into my face in 7th grade gym class. And I'll never forget his kindness. I can't recall a time he ever teased or bullied any of our fellow classmates in 13 years of school. He is truely a hero in my heart and is someone I will care about and remember until my dying day. To his Mother Janie (my former Baseball Coach!) and Nathan my heart goes out to you and I know there are no word to ease your pain, only the memories of two amazing young men taken from us all to soon! God Bless. and R.I.P. Bryan and Pat"
Brian Jackson of Collingswood, New Jersey

"Bryan Richardson

"To the family and fiance of Cpl Richardson, Bryan J. I have the utmost respect and honor for the Marine....I served with Mortuary Affairs in Iraq from feb-sept 2005. I remember receiving the unfortunate call that we had an inbound "Angel". Well isn't that something I didn't know they lifted weights in heaven! I unfortunately didn't have the pleasure of knowing him as his friends, family, and fiance did...however you can rest assured that he was Honored and respected with nothing less than greatness. As I did with all who visited us at Mortuary Affairs I cried for the loss of a Marine Corps Brother and for friends and family alike. If it is okay with the family, fiance, and friends of this Marine Corps Brother I would like to have his name sewn on my Flag to be with all others who gave the ultimate sacrifice while I was in country and fly it at my house with your permission....Ma'am words can not begin to describe the sorrow felt as a result of this loss...May God be with you and all who had the pleasure in meeting this Outstanding Marine...."Semper Fi" Mortuary Affairs 2-3 "No tougher job, No greater Honor" p.s. "He ain't heavy he's my BROTHER" and may God bless his true Brother...Respectfully submitted please respond to Mistycodyalexis@aol.com for the flag inquiry."

"Thank you Bryan!! Sandy and your family are in my thoughts and prayers daily."
Amy Fennell of Summersville WV

"I just want to let you know that the little bit of time you spent up at my grandparent's house with Steven, you still meant the world and all to me. You were as much of a best friend to me as you were to Steven. When I think of you I try to remember the few good times. Like the time you and Steven took me, mom, and Josh horseback riding. We were almost home when my horse got a little to close to Josh's horse and his horse back kicked at mine almost knocking me off.

That is the kind of memory that pops into my head when I think of you. I pray for Janie, Sandy, and the rest of the family everyday before I start the day and every night before I go to bed. You have been an encouragement to me and I will never forget you. Ilove you with all my heart."
Kristen of Mt. Nebo, WV/USA

"We still grieve over you. Your memory will not be forgotten. You will always be in our hearts."

"To Bryan's family:

I've only knew Bryan the short time I have been in Kilo, but he was great guy that everyone liked. May God help you through your pain and loss.

And for Bryan, I will forever have Jesco in my thoughts because of your Dancing Outlaw DVD, and will never drive through Boone County WV. Semper Fi Cpl."
HM2 Sabo of FOB Hit, Iraq

"I haven't seen Bryan in years. I have moved to Illinois and not been home very often. At one time I was good friends with Bryan, and I can remember him being one of the sweetest guys I had ever met. He had a smile that would light up a room. The last time I saw Bryan was the week before he was going into the Marines. I was shocked but very proud of him. Bryan, you are missed very much, but we know you are in a very special place now. I will always remember you. My prayers go out to his fiance and his family."
Sara of Illinois

"I had the privlige of serving with this Marine while I was stationed in Moundsville, WV. I was Cpl. Richardsons' Fire Team leader and friend. He was always someone you could count on for friendship, laughter, and you knew he was there to help you if you needed it. I have great memories of him by my side down in Moundsville and where ever we went for our drill weekends. I know he will be greatly missed and I feel for his family and friends for he gave the ultimate sacrifice for his country. Semper Fi devil dog."

Thank you for your sacrifice to our country. Thank you for becoming a martyr for our freedom. God bless you and may he keep your family and friends close to him."
Shannon of Huntington, WV/USA

"Over the past couple of weeks I have really struggled with exactly what words to put here to honor my little brother. The reality of the situation has just now begun to set in. As I continue to live my life I find myself feeling guilty for slowly trying to redefine what normal has become. As I have seen the outpouring of support that my family has received it has became apparent to me that my brother is now and always will be a hero to everyone. He lived a noble life, always to the fullest. You could hardly be around Bryan without cracking a few smiles. He had a way about him that no one else I know has shown me. He understood everyday things, that to me, his older brother seemed overwhelming. Over the years he and I shared many moments together. From sharing an apartment during his freshman year of college to farming together during our younger years. We made it through what seemed to be the toughest struggles of our life together agreeing to disagree. Over the last couple of years Bryan and I had grown closer than ever before. I thank God for that close relationship. Because of it, I have no regrets about things that I wish I would have said or did. I loved my brother and I'm sure that he knew that. He went willingly to fight this war that for the longest time seemed to be half way around the world. Now that the war has been brought to my home I will continue to honor my brother by not taking advantage of the rights and privileges that he so willingly gave his life to defend. I'm so proud to call Bryan my little brother, there are hardly words to describe it. He lived a life that the most talented of people would have had a hard time mimicking. I can only pray that I can live a life that is as fulfilling to the people around me as Bryan did. I love you Bryan. You are and always will be my little brother and my hero."
Patrick Richardson of Hominy Falls, WV

"As I set on my front porch and watch the flag wave,in each star and each stripe I see your face.I love you and miss you.Some beautiful day I will see your face agian,in Heaven."

"My heart goes out to Bryans family and also Sandy. Bryan was a wonderful guy. Loving, caring, funny,brave,there just arent enough words to describe him. I would just like to thank him for being the hero he was, fighting for our counrty. He will be sadly missed. God bless the family and his fiance Sandy!!!!"
Amber Butcher of Wheeling WV

"Bryan, my goodness, I havent talked to you in years, but at one time in my life you held a special place in my heart, your friendship was so strong and so true. Your love for Sandy was obvious, and my heart goes out to her. It's been hard for me to write something because, frankly, I don't know what to say. I am happy that you are in Heaven, yet sad that you had to leave so many people who cared so much for you behind. You are one of those angels that left such a big impression in your younger years and finished your purpose on earth as a HERO. WOW!! congratulations to you. I know you're happier than you have ever been up there, and Jesus is taking care of you. My deepest sympathy goes out to your family and Sandy...May you rest in peace and always remember that you're a HERO!!! God Bless You Bryan Richardson."
Amber Haynes-Johnson of hometown-Shady Spring, WV

"Bryan,I didn't know you very well,but I wish did.From what I hear you were a wonderful person who could brighten anyone's day by just smiling.We all miss you,but you did what you had to do,and you did it with a brave face.
I'm proud that you served our country,so we could keep our freedom,which we sometimes take for granted.I can't thank you enough for being loyal to this country to make it a safer place.You will always be remembered,and have a special place in our hearts.
THANKS,BRYAN"
Brittany of Mt.Nebo, WV

"Bryan, the American Flag flies in front of my home, I worship the God of my choice, and I speak what's on my mind. These are but a few of the gifts you have given me with your sacrifice. I most humbly thank you, your loved ones, and your brothers and sisters in arms for the most precious gift of freedom. I do not take this gift lightly, and I pray that I can be as brave and strong as you. It is with a sad and humble heart that I bid you farewell Cpl. Richardson, I am so proud of you and the other Fallen Heroes you are now resting with. The following words were not written by me, the author is unknown, but I would like to leave them in your honor:

If you are able, save for them a place inside you. And save one backward glance when you are leaving, for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed that you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have left, and what they have taught you with their dying, and keep it with your own. Take one moment to embrace those Fallen Heroes you left behind.

Thank You Bryan!"
Tim Painter of Mount Nebo, WV/USA

"To the family of Bryan, what a wonderful young man, God chose special people to serve our country. He was a credit to God, our country, our state and to all his loved ones and friends. He and our grandson LCpl Juston Thacker also a West Virginian sound so much alike, if they had met here they would have been friends and now I feel they are walking the golden streets together. They knew what their calling was and followed it with bravery beyond words. I know your pain is deep and hurts so much. May God hold you up and give you peace for your family. Our hearts and thoughts are with you. John 15:13, "Greather love hath no man than this than to lay down his life for his friends." Please, if we can be of help to any of you just let us know. We would be honored to hear from you."
Tom & Dixie Sisk of Princeton,WV

"Bryan was my fiancé, and the true love of my life. Bryan was the most amazing person; he was my heart and soul. Bryan and I have been together for six and a half years. We were going to get married in December when he returned home from Iraq. I always told everyone that he was different from any guy I had ever met, he loved me and was not afraid to show it, and he loved and respected his mommy more than any boy in this world. I had wanted to marry Bryan for as long as I can remember and to me after waiting for what seemed like forever, the timing became perfect and he asked me and all my waiting became well worth it. He told me that day that he loved me more than anything in this world, and I have never felt my heart beat faster. Even though we did not get to take our vows in the church, I know we were already joined together as one soul. God had given me my perfect soul mate, the love of my life. I can honestly say I have no regrets and my life was better for having had him in it. Bryan loved life and he lived it to the fullest. He had a way of lighting up the room wherever he went, and the smiles never faded. I always told Bryan I was willing to stick by him with whatever he chose to do with his life, and that also included him being in the Marine Corp. People have different feelings concerning the war, but to Bryan it was his calling to go over there and to help those people gain their freedom. Bryan died bravely, doing what he wanted to do. I could not have told him enough how brave and courageous he was. I do not know why things happen the way they do, but I do know Bryan left me on this earth with a lot of things: a love that will never fade away, another family to call my own, and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Bryan and I talked about things before he left and he told me that if anything ever happened to him, he only wanted me to be happy. To his friends and family, I know he would want the same for all of you. God needed Bryan to make heaven a happier place. Bryan may not be here on earth but I know his memories and his love will be here to last all of us a lifetime. He will always be loved and never forgotten. Bryan will always be my hero."

Gladys Auxier of Swiss, WV USA

"BRYAN I REMEMBER LIKE YESTERDAY YOU SAID YOU WERE GOING IN SERVICE TO PROTECT ME, WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE. I SAID I'LL TAKE MY CHANCES BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT YOU TO GO. YOU SAID TO ME, "WHAT IF EVERYBODY THOUGHT THAT WAY". I SAID, I KNOW YOU ARE RIGHT, BUT I DIDN'T THINK IT WOULD BE OVER SO SOON. YOU ARE MY HERO THAT IS FOR SURE, BUT NOW YOU ARE GOD'S HERO. I WILL COMFORT YOUR FAMILY AS MUCH AS I CAN. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS YOU WILL LIVE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER."

"Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
I can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter of your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends...

...Bryan, Thank you for your friendship, love, and service. God has a plan for us all. He chose you, with your infinite strength and dedication, to reach others in a way that only you could. I cannot wait to see you in heaven. To your family and Sandy, these times are surely difficult for you. You were blessed to have spent your life with Bryan, and he surely was blessed to have had such a wonderful, supportive family and fiancé. My love, thoughts, and prayers are constantly with you! ---“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” –Psalms 73:26"
Julie Metheney Miller of Princeton, WV

"Bryan, It seems like yesterday that we were playing on the playground at Mt. Lookout Grade School or walking in our cap and gown around the track of NCHS. I can't believe that you have left us. God always has a plan and he makes no mistakes, but it is so hard to find understanding when you had your whole life ahead of you. Your bride Sandy was waiting on you at home, you had finished school, and finally taken steps to build a beautiful life. You were such a wonderful person and loved by everyone you met. I know that I take life of granted, being young you just don't think that anything could ever happen to you or people that you care about, and it certainly made me a more greatful person. However, my heart goes out to Sandy and your family. Thank you for protecting our lives and the future of our children, you will be missed by so many. Bryan may you rest in peace and be as free as we were on those days when our biggest concern was what time recess started. God bless."
Nicole of Princeton, West Virginia
