So sorry to hear of Rich's death. Charlie and I enjoyed his humor, especially his laugh and friendship. I can hear his laughter just looking at his picture. I smile every time I think of him. He was a good man and a good friend, even if we didn't see him that often. But was not out of mind. Love and condolences to you Karen and extended family. He will be missed.
