Dear Julie, Jodie and family, Tammi and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you, with the untimely passing of Rich. He will be missed most of all by his family, but also by those of us who had our paths cross and he left a lasting impression upon. Rich was one who never had a problem making a friend, as he will be missed by many, who he encountered over the years..
