Incredible memories of multiple weekends with Richard and the Stone Ridge Quartet. He always had a joke or a kind word. One time when I was young he saw that I was a bit worried. I told him it was about a class that I was worried I wouldn't pass. He told me that statistically 90% of the things we worry about never actually end up coming to pass. So why worry, the Lord has it worked out. He was right then, and still is. Richard will be missed. Our hearts go out to Trish, Jason, Nathan, Chris and their families. Praying for you all.

I have many fond memories of Richard. I spent a few years on the road playing drums with Stone Ridge Quartet. Had many fun weekends when Lynn, Larry, Richard and my dad. Richard would pick me up on a Friday after school or Saturday and we would head to the bus to get ready for a weekend of fun. I miss those days. Richard will be missed. Condolences to Trish, Jason, Nathan, Chris and their families. Praying for you guys.
