My condolences and prayers to the family and friends of Brian Richter. To his fire department family, lean on each other during this difficult time. I recently lost my fiance to a sudden death. We were both FFs. I has been my FD family who have helped me to cope with his loss. It is never easy to lose someone at such a young age. Keep your heads up and continue to serve your community as FF Richter did and would want you to. It takes a very special person to be willing to give up their life for a complete stranger. This is what FF Richter has done.
Keep Safe and
God Bless You All!

I received a phone call Sunday morning, April 8th, informing me of the death of my brother, Brian Richter. I had a five hour journey to reach home which allowed much time for tears of sorrow and floods of memories. It was the longest trip ever and the hardest to make. My sorrow was eased by the outpourring of love from Brian's FireFighter family and all his friends. The service was so beautiful and I know that Brian was looking down from Heaven smiling as the "last call" was given. This gesture sent chills down me but gave me much peace. To Steve Hemmer and the Pottsville Volunteer Fire Department, Thank you. Your love and support during this time has meant so much to me and my family. Your honoring my brother in this manner has comforted not only you but Sonya, Brian's children and his family. We truly appreciate the effort you give each day in making sure that our world is safer.
As I drove home, I passed a local Volunteer station, and again cried tears of sorrow but in my new enlightened awareness of the sacrifices that Volunteers and other firefighters make each and every day I said a prayer that each would find their way home safe after each call they respond to. I know too that Brian will be looking after each of you because we (his family) teased him about being our very own "mother hubbard", always looking out for us and now he too will be looking out for you.

May all of our prayers and condolences be with the family of Brian Richter who, like many, gave much of himself to helping others in times of need and never needed a thank you to continue to help others.

My condolences to Jessica and the Family of firefighter Richter. God bless the firefighters who knew him well. We recently remembered a local firefighter who died in the line of duty on April 20th of last year. I know how it feels to lose a brother firefighter.

Brian Richter --- the true selfless American hero. As a vol firefighter in my own very small hometown of Mound City IL, I, along with quite a few other wonderful people answered the call for help. Bringing water to a fire is a special thrill that I have not felt in 11yrs as a police officer. My hat is off to all of you. Rest in peace Brother Brian. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
