Our hearts go out to you and your family. Your book about your dad's life documented a story that had to be told for he represents all those who did not have a voice to tell theirs. The legacy he leaves is the model for heroes of the future and a lesson in never giving up. We wish you and Tomaczek the peace in knowing that reconnecting with him enriched your lives.

My deepest sympathy to the entire Cosby family over the loss of their loved one. Richard Cosby is an inspiration to all. His heroic acts, his emotional tenacity, his love for freedom and his love of family serves as an inspiration to those left behind. Through his legacy, he provides us hope and strength in our own lives. He lives on in memory through his life well lived. Thank you, Richard Cosby, for all you did. May God Bless you always, and may your family be continually comforted by fond memories.
