May you and your family take some comfort during this difficult time from the knowledge that Rich has touched so many with his humor, advice, and opinions.

Lisa and family:

I was very saddened to hear the news about Rich. I wish there was something I could do to help! His posts always made my day-I started reading them when my husband told me how great his sense of humor and wit were-and how he had a special way of sharing his opinion that kept everyone interested!

Even though we only knew him from the boards, we will miss him. We felt like we knew him!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please know that the Disney family is always here for you.

I am so very sorry to hear this. I didn't frequent this board that often, but whenever I did I always enjoyed reading Rich's posts. I too was wondering where he's been. My deepest sympathy to you, your daughter, and family. I always enjoyed reading how he loved bringing his family to WDW and staying in the Grand Villas. He will be missed greatly by his DIS family also.

Lisa, So very sorry for the loss to you, your daugher, and your family. I always admired Rich for his thinking "outside the box" and for his courage to speak his peace.

I too was shocked and saddened by the news of Rich's passing. My thoughts and sympathies are with you and your daughter.

He will be missed on the boards. I enjoyed his sense of humor and valued the information he shared about DVC with the rest of us.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I always looked forward to Richyams posts to see how he would stir it up. Thank you for taking the time out of what I'm sure was a difficult morning to let his other family share in your grief. Know that you and your daughter are in our thoughts on this sad day. Richyams is smiling down from his large villa chuckling at the long walks of tonights BWV guests and the BCV's crowded 1BR with that family of five.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. It's strange, but I had just mentioned to my DH just yesterday that I hadn't seen any posts from Richyams for a while and now to see this. God bless your family.

I am soooo sorry for your loss. There are only a handful of names that I remember on these boards because most of the time I only read the post and not by who it is from, but when I read your post, I knew exactly who it was. He must have been a very special person. I know he was on these boards. He willl be missed by many people here. My deepest sympathies to you and your daughter.

I am so sorry to read of this. Rich was active on the debate board while I moderated there, Rich loved a good debate. We exchanged several p.m.s back and forth during that time, he was opinionated but also level headed in private conversations. He will be missed greatly on our boards.
Please accept my condolances

I am so sorry for your loss! My prayers are with you and your daughter at this most difficult of times! I am certainly going to miss the wonderful Disney insight that Rich brought to these boards, along with the spirited DVC discussions.

Godspeed Rich
