Very sorry to hear that, will keep his family in prayers.
Stay focused, work hard, know your numbers, and be disciplined. If you do those things and take care of your people, the likelihood of being successful is very, very high.
Itís a privilege and not a right to own a business.

This is truly sad news for me and the the countless other people he lifted up.

My heart aches.

Thanks Dad.

So, sooo sorry to hear. I feel a sense of loss, and cannot imagine the loss experienced by those who lived with, worked with, and loved him on an everyday basis. Prayers going up for them. As for Richard, he knew where he was going, so we can rejoice in that.

Richard's words (and mentoring) will live on in many of us. Some may remember him for his passion for freely sharing with others. What I will remember of him, is his passion and heart for people.

Life is short, quick reminder -
If you appreciate someone, let them know.
If you need to forgive someone, do it.
If you need forgiveness, ask for it.
If you love someone, let them know.

Don't take anything for granted . . .

Sorry to hear that. I didn't know him other than a few pms and posts on this board, but I had a lot of respect for him.

Even if he disagreed with someone he was always respectful and didn't get into petty fights. He was a wealth of knowledge and advice and will be missed.
