I'm so sorry to lose my oldest brother. Rich was my friend, my protector, a person I loved dearly. Our Mom used to tell me that when I was a baby, he would come home from school, pick me up out of the playpen and tote me around the house with him. When I mentioned it to him he said, "You know, I have loved you since the day you were born." How many sisters have heard that from their brother. Well, Rich, the feeling is mutual. I will miss you every day for the rest of my life, as will Fior, your kids and grandkids. I love you, Rich.
