We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin. We also ask for your patience and for privacy as we work to simultaneously grieve and recover. Thank you.”

Twitter is praying for Boston and praying for the Richard family. Newest little angel, Martin, we are keeping your family in our prayers.
