Dearest Lisa,

There are no words that can take away the pain you and your DD must be feeling. Please know that Rich will be missed by so many who never even knew him, but truly enjoyed his wit, wisdom, and spirit. My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this difficult time. God Bless,

Lisa, my deepest sympathies for your loss.

Rich was one of the funniest and most opinionated voices on the DIS. I always looked forward to reading him, regardless of if I agreed with him! He often had me laughing out loud.

Won't be the same without him.

Much too young to lose a spouse. My prayers are with you. I'm sure others join me in saying that so many of Rich's comments will live in our memories and bring smiles to us for years to come. I, too, trust he's enjoying his OKW GV in the sky.

You have my deepest sympathy.

It was Rich's valuable knowledge the convinced me and my wife to make our purchase. I always enjoyed his humor, and he made me laugh, and laugh, and laugh. I knew when he was serious, and just making fun. I can't imagine how it must feel to lose a spouse, especially so young, but I can say that I now know what it is like to lose a friend. Indeed a friend, a friend I never met except in thought and common interest.

God Bless you and your family, he will ne in my prayers.

Rich was such a delight to read whether he was being helpful or just plain funny. He will be sorely missed here.

Thank you for letting us know.

If the number of hearts one has touched counts on one's final resume, Rich no doubt has earned 25% more room in the Kingdom than the rest of us will get. We too will miss him in our community and will remember him, you, and DD in our prayers.
