I will miss Richard. He was a wonderful person, always smiling and helpful and friendly. I remember when he was very ill and in the hospital in 2005-6, I think. My husband Danny and I were also there and visited him. We talked about how he was so active in liberal politics. I am sad with you about our loss.
