sad news for me
May his soul rest in peace
He was a well wisher whenever he read my poems
I will miss him
Condolences to the inner family
Lovedly

I knew his health wasn't good but This comes as a real shock to me. He was one of the first to encourage me on my scribbling and also a fellow Carolinian. He will be missed by more than just me

to hear the news.

Two losses that are major to our community. First Jess now Richard. You will always be part of our family, we might not be talking on the phone or making plans for the family's future. Still you are always welcome to the table. I miss you brother

So very sad. Richard and I go back to earlier years on Neo. Always the gentleman. Always there when he was needed. Anexcellent poet. He will be sorely missed. Rest with the angels Richard

He will be sorely missed. One of the most encouraging when I first came to the site. He encouraged me to write beyond my comfort zone. We will miss his steady reasoning and his wit. Good-bye Richard...

Come to Chat on the Darkside
every other Saturday night 8pm to ?
Bring your dark and delicious work
to show.

Another adopted Brother, you have journeyed on.
It is another time when our age portrays our future journey's.
We will meet again, and give the kingdom of the universe new words to sing.
They will probably have to open a new Neopoet in the Spirit world.
Damn, Damn, Damn.
We will miss you very much, as Anne said this morning, it is as if another of our family has left us for a while.
Yours as always,
Ian & Anne Howard (UK)

Words can build a nation

So sorry to know that you've all lost a loved member of Neopoet. My condolences to you all and especially to his family.

"The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man." T.S. Eliot, from The Wasteland.

I seldom stop by and what a shock to find this out today. We worked on various forums about 10 years ago and Richard was always the same. Showed an equinimity that spoke of inner strength. Dry sense of humour, great guy. Sympathy to his family as I'm sure he'll be sorely missed.

i will miss you moon man

always remember to make a critique of other poems
using the hoe is not madness for nothing
