I loved my conversations with Rich - always full of warmth and humor. I especially appreciated his commitment to healthy eating (I'm a nutritionist) and our talks about food. I will miss seeing and talking with Rich. My deepest sympathies to the whole family.

Rich was such a kind and pleasant man... I'm sure he was a blessing to his family like he was to his fellow workers at Wegmans. He will be missed so much! I pray for peace at comfort for his entire family at this difficult time.
