I'm so sorry to hear this Lisa. Rich never failed to make me laugh. I loved it when he tried to get a rise out of people with some of his posts. He will be greatly missed here. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter.

Oh my Gosh Lisa, I am so sorry to hear this.
42 is just too young.
I mostly read Rich's posts on the Debate Board. He will be surely missed. I don't know what else to say. I am sorry.

"One of the Best"

One of the main reason this DVC board is so good is because of the participation of people like Rich. He was one of the rare individuals that could really get people thinking. He will definitely be missed. Our deepest condolences.

My prayers for you and your family. Rich always made me laugh especially his comments about BWV. Whenever I walk to my room @ BWV I will think of him. He will be greatly missed!

I am deeply saddened by this news.

I am not a regular here on the DVC board, but I encountered Rich often on the debate board. He and I locked horns so many times on the debate board that I lost count, usually on the topic of religion. We couldn't have been further apart on this topic, but we seemed to never tire of discussing it. Rich was not subtle about his opinions, but you always knew where you stood with him. I will miss his constant decrying of socialism (it seemed he could work this into anything (LOL)) and his passionate discussion of the topics he chose to debate.

Goodbye my friend. Thanks for so many sprited discussions.

Lisa, please accept my deepest sympathies for you and your family.

Remember the thread about the DIS royalty?

Richyams was one of the pillars.

I enjoyed his humor and learned a lot about DVC from him. I too missed his posts recently.

My condolences. I will miss him.

Thank you so much for taking time out to let Rich's extended DIS and DVC family know about his passing. I cannot begin to imagine your and your daughter's loss at this time. Just know that so many loved Rich and his posts, and so many of us think about him when we check into OKW or complain about the long halls at BWV. He was so young with so much more life to live and that just stinks! Know that you have a lot of shoulders here if you ever need them.

May Peace be with you and your family, Rich will forever be a part of this Board. I haven't posted in quite a long time, but have lurked and had wondered where Rich was. Every time that I saw that Rich either Posted something or responded to someone elses I had to read it, (I am laughing right now thinking of Rich) he was fun to read I wish I could have met him. I am deeply sorry for your loss, may God bless you and you will be in my thoughts.
