It has been brought to my attention that many people that have been viewing this GOFUNDME page and dont know me, and my relationship to Richie. And as a result they may have a reservation about donating and where the funds are going. I dont blame you, I am not related to Richie, and I known him for many years, from when we were in the boy scouts Troop 5 out of St. Anthonys Church. I have lived in Revere since the second grade, 2nd - 9th in the Revere School system. I graduated the Northeast Reg. Voc. High School in Wakefield 1973 Grew up in the projects, married and bought a house on Pitcairn Street Revere and reside there on a part time bases I am a registered at the Revere Police department as a law abiding citizen with the approval to carry a concealed weapon, ( Background checks) I am a Member of Freemasons Good Samaritan Lodge Reading. 16 Years Employed at Cisco Systems, currently employed at PTC corporation I can be reached @ email@example.com And you are very welcomed to ask anybody on the Revere community Facebook if they know me and trust me? This the first time I have set up a donation page and I volunteered to do it for John W. Ruggiero who ask for a volunteer. I do understand the need to know more about where your money is going, but this is the best we could do on short notice. I have requested the funds to date, so they can be given to Richies care taker, in fact I will contact him tomorrow to inquire of an account to have the funds directly deposited. All the paper work of any of the contributions and /or transaction will be available for all to see, I have nothing to hide. I am sorry this reply come late but I have been on Vacation and I am buried with emails. Please trust me, my thoughts are in the best interest of Richie. Thanks for your interest.
Get well soon Richie!!

Oh Dear, Richie was our paperboy on Tuttle St for years. Godspeed with your recovery Richie.
All Here is an update on Richies condition. The other day Richie underwent a 7 hour operation, he is out of the hospital and taking it easy ( Doctors Orders). His diet has been reduced to soups and other soft foods. He can speak and I did have a few minute chat with him. I spoke with Richies caregiver and he & his family has expressed their thanks for everybodys warm & thoughtful comments and the donations. He indicated that that have hired a lawyer to help recoup on the medical expresses so the donation will be very much appreciated to help with his expenses. If you would like to send Richie a card, you can send it along to Richie Scannelli 5 Pauline St, Winthrop, MA 02152
