Lisa -

My deepest sympathies go out to you and your daughter. Over the years, I've enjoyed reading Rich's posts. He will be sorely missed.

I am very sorry for your loss. Rich always had the funniest things to say on here....his vents on the 5 in a one bedroom were the absolute best. I would actually sit at my computer and laugh too, at his quirky comments. He just worded things in such a way that he got his point across with a bit of humor also. As someone else noted, he was a huge asset to this board. Everyone on here will really miss not having him around.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

This is too sad for words. Rich's irreverence and sense of fun helped make this board what it is -- and now it will never be the same.

Rich was a character, very bright and witty, and I too will miss him. We will be making our first trip to his beloved OKW in a couple of weeks and I will certainly think of him. You and you daughter are in my thoughts and prayers. My husband and I have both lost our Daddys, it is not easy. Take care of yourselves...Lacee

My deepest sympathy to you and your daughter. Rich has been a legend on these boards from the early days. He will be sadly missed but wil live on in our memories.

My condolences to you and your family, Lisa. Rich and I battled over the years with the BWV vs OKW threads, but he always made me laugh. From the very beginning on the boards, he came across as someone who loved his wife and daughter very much. I am sorry for your' loss, he will be deeply missed.

Unbelievable is the word. If we on the Disboards are shocked, I can't imagaine how your family must feel. I hope you find comfort in the memories you have of time spent at WDW and in particular, DVC, and in all the sharing that goes on in cyberspace thanks to the boards.

Take care. My thoughts are with you.

I am so sad to learn of Rich's death. I enjoyed his posts so much that I read whatever he posted. Please know that he will be remembered by many people here that he never even met. I wish he could read all of these posts about him.

May God see you through your tremendous loss.

I want to express my heartfelt sorrow to you and your daughter as you deal with your loss. Rich was such an intrisical part of this board, that it is hard for me to imagine us without him. I know that it is probably even more unimaginable for you. May our thoughts and prayers and the love of your family and friends help you through these times. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

I didn't know him well but I knew of him from the DVC board and the Debate board. He will be missed.
