Dear Linda and Family,
I was bowled over as I read about Rich in today's paper. I am so, so sorry. I was so fond of him and will never forget our days of meeting each other at PAN, but even moreso working together on the CMC Landscape Project. I never would have made it through that without Rich's company, support, and help. He was an exceptional person...sweet, caring, and always warm and supportive. I still cannot process this news, but wanted you to know how much I admired and cared for him. A great loss!

Hi Linda,
I was looking up some old friends and came across this very sad announcement. I am so sorry! Rich and I were great buds in Pensacola, and I will never forget your trip to Idaho to visit us and spend some great time on Priest Lake. Wish that I had gone to Colorado to visit you guys!

My deep condolences to you, Danny and April.
