    Recently we posted a photo montage of Rich's life on his Facebook page. Someone requested that we also post it on this forum for anyone who would like to view it but is not on Facebook.

    What is the music, at least at the first. That is all the farther I have gotten on my dial-up connection. I may have to go the the public library to see the whole montage. I really like that music.

    The Music is from Phil Keaggy’s album Beyond Nature, and the song is “As Warm As Tears.”

    Thanks for sharing this with us Diana. I very much enjoyed watching it. Rich's good heart is so apparent from the earliest pictures all the way through to the latter ones.

    I'm so glad I checked in....I must confess that since Rich has passed, I find it extremely painful and sad to come here. It just isn't the same without him. Thank you for thinking of us, Diana.

    Thank you so much for sharing this, Diana. Like "determined", I am finding it hard to come onto the forum these days, and really appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing with us during what must be such a difficult time for you. I never had a direct contact with him, but read all of his posts for their erudition, insight, knowledge, and kindness. It is beautiful to see his life story in pictures; a lovely tribute. Wishing you peace this season and always. <3

    I hadn't seen this until now. What a great little video. Thanks so much for posting it.

    Rich was the nicest and most helpful person I've ever met on the forums. I am glad I got to know him. He is greatly missed.
