Wayne--Thank you for putting into words so much of what I was thinking. Your post was spot on, especially these two paragraphs. There are those who do and those who teach, and those who can't do are usually the ones who teach. Funny how that works. Rich is the best example of what real spiritual practice is. He was the real deal in terms of true compassion, wasn't he? An open mind, and a open heart, directed towards serving and helping others. Definitely "an example to us all."
