Our beloved Richie, your smile, the heart of gold, your love for family and friends will be carried in our hearts forever. Your zest for living life in the fullest with traveling, having moments where you were the life of the party, and your giving nature. I asked on November 15, if you would help out with the fundraiser for DJ's basketball team and without hesitation you purchased the popcorn, you are our angel from heaven that God called to his side much too young. I cry tears of joy because God blessed your auntie Nellys
with such a gracious nephew as you. Loveya!!!!

My dearest Richie, your grandmom still has the gift that you gave me at the age of four, the ring and earrings are still as shiny as the day you gave them to me which I cherish forever. I love you so much and my heart is missing a piece of it. Mamacita loves you forever more.

We are so sorry for your loss. We didn't know Richie but we met you Saul when we moved onto Fargo in 95 and you were on Birchwood. Your family was so nice I can only imagine how wonderful your son was. May you be comforted with the rest of the mourners in Israel.

Richard Klupt known to us as Cousin Richie. Barry Abramowicz and Richie’s father Saul are first cousins. We enjoyed so many family gatherings together. Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Birthday Parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Weddings, Anniversaries, and family trip to Toronto. Richie lived life to the fullest. Didn’t have a mean bone in his body. When Richie worked at ABT, he sold us our TV. What a charismatic.salesman! His Great Auntie Esther and Great Uncle Michael truly loved him. Jordan was his beautiful loving snd wonderful girlfriend. Aaron his truly loving brother and friend Saul and Lillian the most devoted and caring parents.
We love you and will miss you dear Beloved Cousin Richie.

Dear Saul and Lillian:
Ligita and I had a brief experience with Richie that was a total contradiction to normal expectations. Usually buying an appliance is exhausting. The consumer is not sure of the brand or how much to spend. Getting a good price is also an issue. Not with Richie!! Shopping, with Richie, as the salesman at ABT, was an absolutely enjoyable participation. His expertise and professionalism were incredible. It was obvious, Richie enjoyed the interaction. Ligita and I also had a good time. We will always remember Richie.
You have our deepest condolences.
With love and sympathy,
Ligita and Michael
