Thank you for sharing.

Many years ago there was a Doonesbury strip about a man dying from AIDS who asked to have Aerosmith play at his funeral. I thought it was a great idea! I'm glad that Rich's funeral was held in that spirit.

Lisa & Jacqui,

Thank you for letting us know how the service went. It seemed quite nice and very appropriate for the Rich we knew on these Boards. We were thinking of you all yesterday.

Thank you for keeping all of us updated. This must be a very hard time for you, and to keep us in your thoughts is a gift. I didn't always agree with Rich, but I always respect his opinion. I hope you will continue to come back and share yours!

Best wishes and God Bless!

Sounds like it was a perfect memorial. You've been amazing to come here and keep us updated, sharing those wonderful pictures, and helping us deal with Rich's passing - all the while, having your own personal grief, staying strong for your daughter, and handling arrangements. I admire your strength and compassion. I really hope you will continue to post here. People like you are what this board really needs. (I think Rich would agree )

Can't help but keep thinking about Rich and his family. I also lost my father at age 42. It was a long time ago....time does help heal. You have been in our prayers.
