What a kind and gentle soul with a dry but marvelous sense of humor. We was brilliant at what he did and he was a calming influence when chaos threatened. My heart goes out to his family and the rest of his friends . He will be truly missed by all who knew him. You're the best, Rich.

I miss my sweet brother, twin in spirit, tribe-mate from childhood, friend, advisor, angelic being so very much. I am so grateful we spoke and laughed so much in his final days, but my heart is breaking ‘cause I’ll never get to see his shining smile or hear his melodious laughter, or spend time talking over our lives and loves. God Bless his soul! I love you Rich💕🌺😭
