he was a man of magnitude, both in his voice , in what he said, and had the feerless way in which he said and told it and wasn't a man to mince words.....and I greatly admire a man for that........don't pussyfoot about if you know your mind......I liked that in Dicky ( richard).
He was also a man of magnitude in his modelling.......a good modeller and always produced top notch stuff, even through his illnesses to the point where I admired him greatl;y for that to.
Although I sadly never met him I wish I had, for over the conversations I had with him through the internet I fealt that I could have called him a friend....he regularly sent my daughters pictures of the highland cattle grazing and "paddling" in his local sailing lake......he needn't have done but that was his kind nature, even through adversity when others would or could not have been bothered.
he will be missed and I will miss his jokes that he sent me over the airwaves.
R I P richard, YOU WILL BE MISSED, by more than you would ever have thought, and my prayers go to you and your family at this very sad time.
