I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Rich from my times on the DVC board over the years.

I hope his good memories live on with you.

This is indeed very sad news and my prayers are with Rich's family. Was his death sudden? It seems to have happend so quickly and at such a young age.

Please allow me to join in everyone's sympathy to you and your family.

My favorite rememberence of Rich was when someone asked two years ago what the BWV were like during the construction. Rich's answer was beautiful and eloquent. He spoke of no boards being on the boardwalk and people having to skip from rafter to rafter.

His sense of humor was intoxicating.

I am truly sorry for your loss.

This is Igor.

I am so sorry that your daughter lost her daddy and that you lost your best friend. The sadness in your heart right now must be overwhelming. We all pray that God may grant all of you the strength to get through this time of your life.

Lisa, I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your daughter in my prayers. I did realize that there were no recent postings by him. I enjoyed reading his opinions...he was a very funny guy. God bless your family.

My symapthy goes to you and your daughter. I enjoyed reading rich's posts and have been doing a search on his name for the past couple of months waiting for him to come share with us. I figured he was busy will a venture of some kind.

Thanks for letting us know.
