Passing of Richard Lainhart

Hi Guys,
some of you may have known of Richard from his postings on the VibeNet. He passed away the end of December. You can learn about his extraordinary activities here.

My first encounter with Lainhart was on the old Vibenet. He was a very nice guy and always offered information whole heartedly. He also was very innovative especially with his stone vibe set. Very good sounding and very very unique, made out of stone materials. I also remember him being very good hearted about my mistaking his identity as that of Albert Salmi, the movie actor. His picture avatar on the Vibenet at that time looked exactly like Albert Salmi and I insisted that he was Albert Salmi using the name of Lainhart as his account ID. He laughed and swore he was Richard Lainhart from the musical world. Of course I was humbled. He was a great guy. Rest in peace Richard.

I remember Richard too... even not as clearly as you Bruce. Man... it seems he passed very quicky and surely much too young...
Thanks for letting us know Vince, and by this maintaining the link within the vibes community...
My thoughts and support to his family and friends.

ps: wasn't his avatar b&w picture a little boy on the phone?
pps: Vince, did you post something on thevibe.net? What do you think?

I don't know what avatar he ended up with, but his original avatar was an adult b&w picture that I surely thought was Albert Salmi, the actor.
