RIP, Cowboy.

I never saw him say an unkind word to anyone.

Me neither.

Tell you what--at the risk of being inappropriate--my first thought of response to David's comment was, "You can say that twice and mean it!" And then with a shock I remembered that Rich taught me that line. And I actually smiled at the memory.

It's never inappropriate to remember what we love most about others. Thank you for sharing the memory.

I got the word in a text from Eric earlier this afternoon that Rich has passed over.  My heart goes out to us all and to Rich and his family.  He was a beautiful person and he will never be forgotten.  Those we love never really die.  As far as I'm concerned, Rich is still very much a part of our lives and will always be with us.

I've sent a text to Gene, to let him know that all the Brokies here are missing Rich, and they all send their love to him and his boys, and Bizzy.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''

Please let there be a God and let him look after Rich and keep him warm. My love to everyone.

I believe there is a God, sweets, and I have every confidence that Rich is safe and happy in the arms of the Lord.  His journey has just begun and in time he will be reunited with those he loves.

I have spoke with a non brokie mutual friend and have learned the following:

There will be a cremation, but details of the service will be worked out tomorrow. The request has been made for donations to be made for Elizabeth's education in leiu of flowers.

Gene has gone to tell Elizabeth.

Hugs to all, and especially hugs, thoughts, prayers and love for Rich's family, his partner and his daughter.   What a terrible shock.   :'(
