We are losing far too many people it seems

Thank you for letting our community know. I'm terribly sorry that he's gone. Many of us grew as writers from reading his work and style. I'm thankful to have had creative interactions with him.

Richard was not only a leader for our community . He always set the example. Richard was also a a very good friend he willb e sorely missed

burning hearts in hell( L.Cohen)

Is it the same person who died recently? I'm not sure, but I'm so sorry for your loss of a good friend and member.

Know then thyself, presume not God to scan,
The proper study of Mankind is Man.
Plac’d on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great….

I am saddened to hear this news. Richard was a constant back when I frequently visited. As I recall, he was a calming force when others needed calming. (It was a crazy time at Neo, way back then) My condolences to those that knew him well.
