Christopher, Erik, Sara, Michelle, Silas and Chase,
Rich was such a great guy. I wanted to share two memories with you. The first was after Darrel was born Sara and Rich stopped at my house to meet him. It really struck me, because I don’t know a lot of people that would go to the effort to meet their grandson’s half brother. I just thought that was so sweet.
The other memory we all shared, it was Rich and Tom on stage at Christopher’s grad party! That was pretty awesome!
I am so sorry for your loss, we were all richer for having had him in our lives.
