Richie, I am sorry for your Dad's passing. I have so many happy memories of times I spent with Rich and I know others do as well. His laugh and smile were contagious. While our paths didn't cross as frequently as they did in the old days he remained one of my very best friends. God Bless you Rich and as you always said, "later slater".

All of us at Great Lakes Recovery Centers want to offer our sincere condolences to Richard's family and friends.

We also want to thank his family for for directing those who wish to express their sympathies, to do so by making a memorial contribution to GLRC. It takes a unique strength of character to think of others during a time of personal tragedy; we are grateful, inspired and humbled.

Contributions will be used to fund our Compassionate Care program for clients who lack the resources to access the substance abuse and mental health treatment that they need. I hope that knowing this will provide a little comfort during this difficult time.
