Message 1888204 - Posted: 6 Sep 2017, 21:17:34 UTC - in response to Message 1888128.  

I met a man one day.
A wonderful man.
A person that inspires us.
A soul just to be.


Ey up Richard.

A loving wave for you and yours from this side of the pond.

Where ever you travel we are there.

This is Joanne Lubrich, companion of Richards, posting on his site. Richard is now under hospice care in our home. Please pray for his comfort and passing into heaven. I will post updates. His condition is due to heart failure.

So sorry to hear this.
I pray that he is at peace and resting comfortably.
And that he knows of the well wishes of many here on Seti that are with him.

I light candles at my mother's favorite church, and I will do so also with Dr. SETI in mind.

....Richard is now under hospice care in our home. ....



Thank you for keeping us updated on our friend Carlos.

Being under hospice care is a part of life and not the end of life.

From experience hospice for a loved one is a personal experience for family and close friends.

Richard.

Our Heart To You And Your Family.

Joanne, as you are keeping up with this thread........
Please give Richard my kindest regards.
We had talks about kitty things and computer things and meowed back and forth a few times.
He always had a great sense of humor. And I think of him very fondly.
You can tell him that my two kitties are having their birthday today. 16yo.
And I hope that some of your critters are keeping him company.
Meow, dear Richard! Meow.

Oh, and Joanne.....
I posted a few pics of my kitties this morning in my kittyman thread.
If Richard is up to it, you might print them or show them to him.
Hopefully it might give him a smile or some warmth in his soul.

For Richard.
If I had the power of the Lord above to make you well my friend,
we could sit by the shore and smile and chat and while the hours away.
But such power, alas, I do not have. But although our lives may end,
please know that when my days end too, we shall be together and chat all day.


May God bless you, Richard.

This is simply, not good news to read. A true gentleman and one with intelligence and plain, simple kindness within him. I don't really know what to say, as, to be honest, my emotions are getting the better of me. I can't really add more, to what has already been said.
