    If looking for uniqueness, you would find Rich Jodon. Totally outgoing, he had a smile and greeting for everyone. I don't think that he ever met a stranger. I am honored to consider Rich a friend. He will be truly missed.

    Rich, you sneaky bugger!? I only just found out that you left us when I tried to check on you after not receiving any messages from you in a while. God speed you on your journey forward my friend. I certainly will miss our talks and emails, and I offer my sincerest condolences to your family. We didn't know each other TOO well, but I definitely felt an true and honest affinity between us that is very hard to find in people nowadays. It was an honor to call you friend. All the best.
