Rich had a way of lifting me up whenever I attended an employee meeting when he was present, speaking from the podium at the Center of Free Enterprise, now WHQ. Rich was a joy to listen to. His manner was not only comforting, but gave the impression he was steady at the helm, that the ship was in good hands, whether the seas were calm or not. Rich was genuine to me, the real deal, always trying to do what is good and just in the eyes of God. Farewell Rich, I will try to live my life like you, doing the right thing with honor and respect for all people, the way I believe you would have wanted us to behave. RIP. "Love Ya" Jim Myaard.
