I dated Rich in H.S. for about a year....I had no idea he was a bully at ALL...I am reading these posts and am stunned..then again I did not go to Oyster Bay H.S..I went to a private academy and met him thru my sisters boyfriend.....we said goodbye when my family moved overseas...He was my 1st kiss....

My experience with him (He was 16 , I was 15) was not something I remember with hate ... I remember him being pretty tender and nice....sure, I am sure we fought...and YES he was adventurious and tended to do things that were a bit ..dangerious......funny how one poster said they lived in the gate house...I was at that house and YES, I thought it was their estate..lol.....

Anyway, I was touched and saddened when I found out he had died...

and I agree that people can change a WHOLE from the age of 17 to 41....

Is this the same Kappel family that lived in a gate house on an oyster bay estate and tried to make it look like they lived in the mansion so they would appear uber wealthy?
