It's been over four months since Rich's sudden death, but reading wonderful comments about him from all of you really helps with healing. I miss him so much it seems unbearable at times. It still seems impossible that he is gone.

My sympathy to friends and relatives, from an "outsider", who knew him just well enough to say a bit more than "hi!" Being 14 1/2 years his senior, I feel his passing was much too soon.

"Rich", with Chuck Severance, M. Riordan, and P. Pirozzo, were indispensable as advisors on development and testing of a model that became my doctoral dissertation. Their names appear under "acknowledgments" therein. My dissertation (1990, Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, MSU) is titled "Population Dynamics and Management of the Okavango River Crocodiles in Botswana".

I had the pleasure of knowing Rich for several years at SHARE, and enjoyed his great early book on the Internet. I treasure memories of our epic 1996 shared boondoggle trip to a conference in Tokyo; he was a lively/fascinating travel companion. Most of all, he was charming, level-headed, inquisitive, collaborative, intelligent ... and much more. Too soon gone; I'll miss him.

Richard was the best man in my wedding in London in 1978. I had just had news of him after a lengthy hiatus and was hoping to renew our friendship. Too late. I choose to remember him as young, handsome, gifted and charming and with an impulsive generosity that was rare. Richard will be sincerely missed and will always have a place in my heart.
