I too have missed Rich's posts and his delightful sense of humor. I was thinking just the other day about Rich and wondering where he had been. I'm so sorry to hear that he has passed on. You and your daughter will be in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Rich was one of the first people I ever "met" on these boards, way back in 1998. I got to know so much more about DVC, through his posts. I loved his wry sense of humor.

Deepest condolences to his family. You are in my prayers.

Sharing my condolences, Lisa, on Rich's passing. So very sad. I never really had any interaction with Rich here, as we am not DVC members. But I do know Rich had a presence here you so well described in your sad posting telling us of his passing. He will be missed. Again, my condolences to you, your daughter and all your family.

I am shocked to hear this. He was a big part of the DVC boards. I always looked for his opinion, whether we agreed or not, he always gave a good point of view.

I admired that he home schooled his daughter and went on special trips to Disney with her.

From his trip details, your family shared DVC trips in the Grand Villa with many other family members. What a wonderful family the three of you made.

When ever I get to stay in a Grand Villa myself, Your family will be in my thoughts.

Lisa, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. For years, I have been a silent lurker on these boards, and Rich’s posts were always some of my favorites to read. I especially got a kick out of reading the responses from new folks on this forum, just after Rich shared some of his classic opinions. They never knew what hit 'em! Sooner or later, everyone seemed to get his sense of humor.

I was just thinking of him, this week, and even did a search to find out when he last posted. His veteran knowledge of DVC has been missed.
