I met Richard at CES just before I became a moderator. True gentlemen, helped me get around CES, gave me many great tips.

I hoped we'd get to see each other at CES again someday. At least I know I will see him in the CES in Heaven.

Peace, Richard. You done many good things, now you get to do them in Heaven.

I never met him, and I didn't know him well... but his name is all over the place here, and he has been noticeably missed as he had cut down on his activities here recently. He will be missed even by those of us who only knew him as a name on the screen.

I never had the chance to meet Richard in person, either, though I interacted with him often over the years I've been here. He was one of the "old, grizzled veterans" of DBSTalk when I made my first appearance here.

Today is a sad day, indeed. Richard will be sorely missed. Though I imagine right about now he's sitting behind a sound board making heavenly music with someone.

My wonderful cat, Kawie, passed away on 11/23/08. He had a remarkable soul, and I miss him deeply. Thank you, my buddy, for sharing your life with me.

A true gentleman, he will be missed. Never met him but had numerous chats with him over the years about hurricanes as he lived not far from me.
My condolences go out to his family.
