This date is forever engrained in my memory. The world lost a great person, and through his death I was given the gift of knowing his family where his spirit and love live on. Thank you, Rich, for your service and sacrifice to our country through the USMC and the Sauk County SO. Thank you to his family for the wonderful memories over the years.
