I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Richards passing. I am a friend of Cindy's and we all used to go out for drinks on Fridays after work or they would invite me to their home.

Was so shocked and saddened to see of Rich's death in yesterday's Washington Evening Journal. I was a friend and classmate of Rich's in high school and distinctly remember sitting next to him in trigonometry. We had good times chatting before class, he was such a witty fella. He was a strong student, without having to work as hard as I did!!

For those of you closest to Rich, I'm so very sorry for your loss.. I hope that your memories will sustain you and time will help to heal the deep sadness in your hearts. Marde McConnell

Cindy, I am so sorry for your loss. I have always noticed that when you were speaking of Richard there was a giddiness in your tone. We all knew how much you two loved each other. You are in my prayers.

I met Richard through Cindy, a close friend and high school classmate. Over time I knew him as a gifted carpenter, welcoming neighbor and witty conversationalist. It was with great sadness that I learned of his passing.
To his family, please know that although grief can be hard, it will be replaced with wonderful memories of his life.
