Unhappy Lisa and Family!!!

I am so going to miss Rich!!!!

You always knew where you where with Rich, and I loved his sense of humor. His posts were funny, and straight to the point. Because of this, I PMd Rich for job advice, while I was unemployed in IT (information technology).

Rich's advice helped me to get my confidence back, and because of his and other's support, I have started my own company and am doing now better than ever.

I wish I could express to you how grateful me and my family are to Rich.

Even though we never met except via PM thru this forum, Rich touched our lives in a big way.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help,

I'm crying now.... Goldi
I love my DVC!

Thank you for letting us know, Lisa -

We'll be holding you, your daughter, and all of Rich's family in our hearts - countless times over the years Rich's posts brought a smile (and a laugh) to my day !- and his love and knowledge of DVC and the enjoyment he shared of your times together at WDW influenced us greatly in becoming owners. . . such a great loss

My heart goes out to you. Rich will be sorely missed on these boards. I didn't always agree with what he said, but I love the way he said it.

To Lisa and family: What an unimaginable loss you have had to endure! While I certainly didn't "know" Rich, there was no mistaking his personality through his posts. He was opinionated, funny, witty, honest, straightforward (etc, etc.) but somehow it was still so apparent how much he loved you and your daughter through some of his posts. I certainly disagreed with some of his opinions (particularly the religious ones:D ), but he ALWAYS made good points and made me stop and think. One has to admire that in a person. He truly was a unique individual. God bless you and yours during this difficult time. May your memories of him always continue to comfort you and bring you peace.

Sorry for your loss. Richyams posts always made me giggle. I have even read many of them aloud to my DH. He will be sorely missed.

To Lisa and family.....

I am so sorry for your loss. Richyams will definitely be missed here on the DIS. His humor and wit always made me laugh so hard. His strong opinions were also quite refreshing at times.

Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family right now.

Who can say if I've been changed for the better...but because I knew you, I have been changed for good!
Forget regret or life is yours to miss...No day but today!

There is hope for the helpless, rest for the weary, love for the broken heart. There is grace and forgiveness, mercy and healing, He'll meet you wherever you are.

Thanks so much for letting us know. I put my memories of rich in another thread, before I read this one. I hope he brought as much joy to you and his family as he did to us here. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
