Rich wrote, recorded and performed this song with his wife Angela singing harmony in his home studio a few months before he died. She is grateful he left his voice behind, and this song helps her keep his memory alive.

In May 2013, I wrote this about my healing journey with regard to regaining lost memories.

I Feel You In My Memory Now

You were my best friend, and there's someone missing now.
But I don't recall who.

I feel your fingers interlaced in mine.
This must be how we held hands.

I sleep with a body pillow on my right side.
This must be where you laid.

I pulled this pillow on top of my chest,
and briefly felt your goatee irritate my breast.
This must be how I held you in my arms.

I still see 6:13 on the clock all the time,
but I can't recall why this was your lucky number.

You still talk to me through music, as you always have.
But the songs are no longer in your voice.
