Hiya Brokies.

I'm coming here with sad news, and I'm trying to figure out the most gentle way to say this, especially since I don't have all the details yet.


I just got off the phone with Gene.  For those of you who don't know, Gene is Rich's (LoneLeeB3) partner.  There was an event this weekend that they were both attending, I  believe it was a riding event.

Rich suffered a hard fall and blow to the head.  He is currently on life-support.  Gene is keeping him on life support until all of Rich's family can get to the hospital and say good-bye.

Miracles do happen, so prayers are appreciated, however, the general belief is that Rich will not survive past this afternoon.

Gene said he will call me with news as soon as he has it, and I will send it out to the Brokies.

I'm praying for you, Big Brother!







Update:  As of 6:06 PM this evening 7/31/2010, Rich passed away.  His partner Gene was with him, holding him.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

May there be peace for all his family. May there be peace for him. I wish I could save you.

I can hardly bear this. 

My thoughts are with Bizzy, Gene, the boys and Rich's family. 

Just yesterday, Rich posted "The Maker Makes" on facebook, saying, "I love this song! Don't know why but it was heavy on my mind this morning."

I love you guys.

I spoke to Rich & Gene on the phone Thursday night.  Rich was in great spirits and looking forward to this weekend.

He spoke to me about my diet, and he wanted to try it, but didn't have the time to get to the store for the book.

I purchased an extra copy of the book, and sent it with a card of encouragement yesterday afternoon.

Now all I can think of is that he won't see it, and Gene will get the package.

God.  In the link of an eye....................

My heart breaks for his loved ones.

I didn't get the chance to go see his cow and calf operation.

I was waiting until it got cooler.

As soon as I have updates, I will post them to the thread.  Unless Truman gets them first, and then he'll update them.

I've been calling Brokies most of the morning, specifically those who met and knew Rich closely.

The phone call to Matt (ZK) was hard.
