    I had just picked up a guitar from Rich for my boys to learn to play. That thing is going to have a special place now.

    RIP, Rich. You will be missed, brother.

    Shit bolted onto other shit, and junk.
    We just spoke the week before after his first episode. I can’t believe he is gone just like that. I am more thankful that I had the opportunity to meet him than anything.
