Like many others, I noticed Rich had stopped posting here quite awhile ago. I just assumed he'd gotten bored with the boards,lost interest after having many of the same debates over & over again, answering the same questions over and over. Guess I was very wrong.

My favorite Richy'ism : "The glass at BWV is very clear". I may have to have a t-shirt made with that quote on it if I ever stay at BWV again. What I loved most about the statement was that many people never understood it.

Lisa, my prayers are with you and yours.

Rich's pointed remarks were a great way to hone an opposing view on many issues. But on the subject of OKW, there really IS no opposing view, right Rich? Only an amazing person could elicit in cyberspace so much regard. You must certainly be treasuring more than ever those OKW grand villa trips, Lisa. Thanks for posting at this traumatic time so that Rich's friends can mourn his passing.

I too am truly sorry for your loss, Lisa. I have certainly missed his unique wisdom of late. The passion he had for OKW seemed to be the passion with which he lived his life. May God Bless you and your family.

I am so sorry for you and your daughter's loss. I hope the many memories you have will bring you some comfort in the months and years ahead.
Dh and I planned a short notice trip this past year and because of Richyams many glowing posts on OKW, we were very content when all we could get at short notice was OKW.

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Though we never met Rich we felt as if we knew him through his humorous tones here on the forums. He always provided wit where needed. He will be truly missed here on the DIS. May God provide you comfort in the coming days.

Lisa, I too would like to let you know that you and your daughter are in my thoughts and prayers. I don't post often, but enjoyed reading Rich's posts. I had noticed he was absent from the boards and am so sorry to hear of his passing.

Our deepest sympathies to you, Lisa, and your daughter.

Your husband was a special man...one who could put a smile on the faces of so many people and a laugh in their hearts at the same time (a gift that is truly invaluable).

Thank you Rich for the smiles and the laughs. You will be missed!
