Sorry for your loss and many prayers to you and your family. Rich was always direct with answers and I know he will be missed by many. May you find peace and comfort.

I am so sorry. Rich will be missed by many people. I loved his sense of humor and his ability to stand up for his beliefs. You and your daughter are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lisa, as you can see from all these postings how many people's lives Rich touched. We have all truly enjoyed his postings (especially raving about OKW). It really won't be the same without him.

My family and I will have you and your daughter in our prayers. We hope you will post yourself which may help you. Remember we are all here for you.

God Bless you.

Lisa - I am so sorry for your loss.

Rich will definitely be missed. If there is anything anyone can do - just ask.

I will miss him!!!

Thank you so much for your consideration in sharing this news with Rich's DIS friends. I am so sorry for your loss.

There was a thread not too long ago posted by Loubon about the funniest DVC post you've ever read on the DISboards. I think Rich was quoted (and misquoted) in 75% of the responses. We will miss him here.

My condolences, Lisa to you and your daughter.

Shocked and sadden at the news. I would have liked to have met Rich and chatted with him in person. He was passionate about OKW, he spoke often of his stays with family and friends there. This convinced me I had made the right decision in purchasing OKW. He gave freely of his advise and experience to help any newbies. I will truely miss his post, humor and advice.

I too would like to add my condolences about Rich. As much time as people spend on this board, please realize it is all trivial compared to the loss of a young husband and father. My family sends you prayers to comfort and love for strength.

I will miss Rich and his spirited participation.

Prayers and Pixie dust to a family of a man that brought more
to the DIS than prayers and pixie dust.

People like Rich make this place unique!

God bless you all!

Lisa, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter. Rich brought many smiles to my face and well as out and out laughter while sitting at my keyboard. I hope you can take some comfort in how many peoples lives Rich touched and how many people he made smile on a daily basis. He will be missed!
