    So very sad to hear. My thoughts go out to your family. Rich was a good person. Rich and Patricia were very sweet and kind people. Always there to help. They always had some kind words or thoughts to share along with wonderful smiles. To see them together was a treat because watching them you knew they were meant to be together and were best friends. God bless .
