What a tribute to Rich to see 8 pages of memorials to him.

I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I found the boards in the spring of '98 - and Rich was already here. I remember one particular thread where he was going on and on about the poor driving skills of Floridians. Not knowing him then, I just jumped "all over that one."

I hope my ranting gave him a chuckle...

My prayers go out to you and your family.

This board won't be the same without Rich!!

Lisa & family ~
My deepest sympathies. I will always remember Rich's wit and playful sarcasm. His presence on the DIS will be missed. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

Lisa, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this time.

I've been away from these boards for most of the spring and summer and just got back in last week. After a day or two of catching up, I realized that I hadn't seen any recent posts from Rich.

I was concerned, since he was always so active here.

Thank you so much for letting us know in this difficult time. That was a wonderful act of consideration and generosity on your part.

Rich will be sorely missed here. He was always one of the highlights of these boards, and I am sure he is being life of the party and chief conversation starter up in heaven.

God bless!

I enjoyed his conservative voice on the debate board. We were often on the same side of most issues. He will be missed. I was shocked when I read of his passing. It is very sad.

Lisa, please accept my condolances at what must be a very difficult time for you and your family.

Rich was definately one of the members here that I would most liked to have met up with and had the opportunity to chat with face to face. I'll miss his contributions ( even those I didn't agree with :D )

Thank you for taking the time to let us know, I'm certain many people, like me, appreciate the news, even if it is sad and unwelcome for us all.

I will never forget the pigsfeet posting where Rick taught us how to cook something like that in our OKW villa. It was just too funny!
