I would love to share with you the pictures of Richard that I have -  It's from a different time in his life though. 

Is that appropriate?

I think that would be a great idea. It would give those of us who didn't know him as closely some more insight into who he was.

Amen to that, Milo. Never enough pictures of Rich, never enough.

I'm a little jealous of those of you who got to know him in person, but am happy to have had the contact that we did.

Marcia - I think it is entirely appropriate for you to post about your time with Rich and photos from before we knew him.

As Paul said, the slideshow was terrific in that we got to see Rich before we knew him.

Post to your heart's content.

If you ever feel the need to talk to a female type, I am available. We can PM or set up a time to chat.

Hugs to you and Elizabeth. I can't even conceive of how hard this must be for you both.

Love,
Lynne

{{{{{MARCIA}}}}}

I can't imagine a relationship much closer than one that shares a child. Your feelings are so legitimate. It's a testament to both of you that you stayed in touch and in tune to your daughter's life. That does not always happen.

I'd enjoy seeing your pictures, too.

I agree, I think it is appropriate for you to share your photos and memories of him.

Rich was mentioned during the Riderless Horse Ceremony here at the SF Gay Rodeo this past weekend...

They mentioned his "stumbling upon" the SF Gay Rodeo in 2007, and going on to become a member of the Georgia Gay Rodeo Association, and competing in the Fort Lauderdale Gay Rodeo in 2008.

That's beautiful, Eric! I would have been a basket case, watching that... :'(   The rodeo's early this year!
May 2019 be better for us all.
