Dear Richard. I am absolutely going to miss your unique wit, which remained vibrant even when things became difficult. I will miss the texts from T saying 'could you pick RCD up a paper en route?' I will also miss our lunches in the garden listening to you pulling T's leg and sharing our topical chats. It is very sad you are no longer with us. I saw the advertisement earlier for tomorrow's Women's Six Nations Rugby. I actually said out loud' I wonder what RCD would think of that!'. It was lovely to know you good sir. Sleep well. Lizzie x

Dear Jo, Nathan, Nick and Tamara
So very sorry to hear about Dick's death. I will always remember him as this loud exotic guy who would pop up in my parents' house every now and then (I was too young to keep track of details but I assume he travelled with work as he sometimes came alone). He would make make us laugh even if we didn't understand what he said, and if we kissed him on the cheek he gave us a 10 SEK note! I will also remember him as the person who would always get my dad in the best of moods, not always easy. I like to imagine them sharing a bottle somewhere now, having a laugh and reminiscing. Thinking of you all. I will light a candle on the day of the funeral. Love, Helena
