    Julie introduced Rich to a couple of guys displaced from Germany and Arkansas by the work at the ThyssenKrupp Steel plant. Rich accept these men like family, sharing his home, food, beverages, and love for the New Orleans Saints. He had a contagous laugh and a welcoming sense of humor and personality. He loved Julie and family. I was one of those displaced men and I know that Heaven has gained a loving man. I wish I could have known him better and spent more time with him. It's my prayer that God will provide the peace that only He can give during this time of greaving.
