Hello Matthew :-) a blessing poem. One can only see death as a better place. A heart-felt poem may he rest in peace ""FREEDOM"". Did you know Richie with the beautiful last name of Haven, personally. I know of Richie Haven the folk singer... He loved his guitar. I heard of his death on CNN. This is a lovely tribute. I think he was 72 years old. thank you for the wonderful words...xox~ Linda
