"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." ~Leo Buscaglia

Sad to hear. Old friends from grade school and high school and early years on the job. We remember Rich whenever stories arise. I recently found an old 8mm video of Rich, Danny and I on a vacation to California in about 1969 or 70. God we were young and full of life.
