I did not die (Author unknown)
Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

May you live on forever in the hearts of all of your fellow DVC fanatics.
You truly were, “A man, A legend, A way of life.”
I miss you already.

Please take comfort in knowing how deeply Rich has touched the lives of all of us here on the DIS boards. God bless you and your daughter.

Lisa, thank you for letting all of us know about Rich at this very sad time. We are so sorry to hear about his death. He will remembered as a very gentle tease! What a reputation among the DIS regulars. He shared so much good information with a generous amount of kindness. My deepest sympathy to you and your daughter. He will be greatly missed. Barbara

I, too, have been wondering where Rich has been these past couple of months. Now I know.

My deepest sympathies to you and your daughter on your loss. How lovely and thoughtful of you to take the time out of what I know is an extraordinarily difficult time, to let his "DIS Family" know.

Forevermore, whenever I drive into OKW, know that I will say a quick prayer for your husband, may he rest in peace (in a large grand villa that he could park in front of rather than schlep down a long hallway to get to ).

Prepare your child for the path, not the path for your child.
Stop telling your God how big the storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is.
It's time to put on your big girl panties and deal with it!
Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out.
There's no pill that cures stupid.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
