My thoughts seem to be with Rich and his family more often than not these

 days, but I've been trying to appreciate some of the wonderful college

 memories of him. I want to tell you because I never had the chance to tell

 him- amidst the enormous insecurity and self-doubt that was college (total

 idiot underclassman), he was someone who always made me feel worthwile and

 instantly comfortable with his warmth and humor. I've been reminiscing

about the fun nights with Skunkhead, Simpsons at the Bagel Bar, Poor Pennies,

and the North Court Volleyball tournament. As you know, he was a dear, special

 person, and I am proud to say he was my friend.


 Thinking of you and yours with deepest sympathy,
