To the Editor:
Richard was a star. He sparkled, he winked at you through his paintings and made us laugh. All the while he was watching us and laughing. He had an aura of sparklers surrounding him, a bit of Puck's mischievousness lived within.
Richard, you have brought us joy in this lifetime, thank you and please, keep twinkling and rearranging the starry, starry sky in your vision.
