I missed my dear friend Rich's e-mails, so it has taken some time for me to learn of his passing. In high school we had a group that we called "The Royal Lancers", (found memories) and we often met at Rich's home in the basement. If memory serves me correctly, I may have introduced him to his lovely Bride at a YMCA dance. I sincerely regret his passing.
