I was so sad to hear of Rich's passing. I think of him & Aunt Penny everytime I hear Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You". When I was a young teenager, everytime I was sick, all it took was a visit from Rich & I started to feel better. He became my "Medicine Man" & will be forever missed. Keeping the family in my thoughts and prayers.
