Eventually, we all DID find ourselves. Rich married his sweetheart, the very talented floral design artist, Becca.
Together, they raised a fine family and created a successful business, Flower Works ... which is still the best florist shop in St. Augustine.
The last time I saw Rich was a few years ago at Mom's.
He had stopped by with a flower arrangement for Mom ... just because.
The doorbell rang, I opened the door, and there he was, an armful of flowers, and that easy smile.
That is the image that will stay with me each time I think of Rich Cady, a happy man enjoying this precious life.
