Patti, Candy and I send our deepest condolences and prayers to you on the loss of your beloved Richard. It was an amazingly special bond and love the two of you shared for so many years. May you be blessed with never-ending warm memories of a life well-lived, a name well-respected and a love like no other. I'll go home this evening and play "The Girl from Impanema" on my piano in Richard's fond memory! I'm sure that somewhere in the universe he will be smiling.
