To the family and friends of Rich. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. I remember Rich from High school. We never really spoke back then but I remember him and Brandon from school. As time past one day my mom kept talking about a guy that lived next door to her. She kept saying his name is Rich. You both share the same Birthday together. My mom had a lot of health issues and my mom starting spending time with Jenna. A lot of games and coloring between the two. When my mom passed Rich and I became Facebook buddies. I would check in on Jenna a lot and Rich would ask about how I was doing or my kids. Rich became a good friend. We always wished each other Happy Birthday on July 24. I think he even joked with me cause I was older then him. I always wanted to ask him to go with me to celabrate but never asked him. You always think you have more time. Life teaches us that tomorrow is never guaranteed. He was such an amazing father to his daughter. Jenna is his pride and joy. Jenna reached out to me the night Rich passed and I have been in shock every since. Jenna remember the wonderful times you have had with your dad. Always know he is with you where ever you are and he is still protecting you. He loves you more then anything in this world don’t forget that!
