My condolences to the family, and my prayers are for the family. He was my freshman, high school English teacher. He made it fun.

Mr. Richter was a great teacher. His love of cemetaries may have been what made me not have a dislike for them. Peaceful beautiful places. May he rest in Paradise and may his family know what an inspiration he was.
