A Personal Note

I would just like to thank the many viewers who were kind enough to express their condolences both here in the blog comments and on Twitter regarding the passing of my brother Michael.

I am grateful for your love and support. And now- let’s continue on our journey, hopefully with better times ahead.

Just reading this. So sorry Rich to hear this sad news. Always difficult when you lose a member of the family, but a brother is especially tough. I have a brother named Michael as well.
You and your family are in my thoughts during this difficult time.

A big fan.

Dear Rich,

Your TV show ALWAYS bring me such fond memories, AND, I VERY much appreciate the little funny snippets throughout the films, plus your singing, accompanied by your wonderful music director. I have not been on this website for a while (apologies), so I did not see the notice about your dear Brother Michael passing away. My remaining sibling, my eldest brother passed in Dec. 2018, so I understand your grief and sorrow very clearly.

You have my most sincere condolences and sympathy on your loss. Know that I am a huge fan of yours, and I always will be.

May God bless you,

Sven/Rich I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. You make me smile each week and so I hope you are not sad for too long...and now Michael can watch and laugh at your silliness from where he sits. Just know you have a massive family behind you in the fans that you make so happy, so heal soon and know that we are all together giving you a gigantic hug.

Sven -- I'm so sorry to hear this news. I lost my brother eight years ago. He and I grew up as monster kids of the 60's. Whenever you're going to show a movie I know he would like, I still think, just for a second, that I should call and tell him about it. Blessings and comfort to you and your family.

I just saw this as I was posting my own sort of acknowledgment to the bloggers who have offered me support.

My Wife passed two weeks ago and I am just beginning to work my way through it. I can only imagine what you are going through.

My sympathies to you - and know that in your case - a lot of other people are wishing you sympathy and support as well.
