Annelise-- I was stunned to learn (yesterday) of Rich's passing. We first met during a briefing at OCPA, DA back in the mid-80s. Four years later it was my great privilege to serve four years as the Public Affairs Officer at the Military Community in the Netherlands during his tenure at AFCENT. I loved serving with him. He was a great leader and a great friend. I must admit, I haven't run across too many with his great sense of humor, either! I always hoped that one day our paths would cross again but I guess that reunion must wait yet a while longer.... The world is a sadder place without Rich. I am so terribly sorry for your loss.
