Condolences to the family and close friends. My sister and I, together, spoke with Richard during a National Trust Open House at Bleak House. Always friendly and willing to chat he brought back memories to us , as children living in Fontabelle, seeing him as the Giant at Goddard's Supermarket! A few years ago, although clearly weakening, he greeted me with the same lively attitude when we met at the Blind Workshop to pick up items caned at that facility. His engaging manner will be missed by many.

On behalf of Norma Compton, sad are the hearts that love you. Silent are the tears that fall. Your heart was kind and true. Your memory a treasure.
