    Hi I am sorry to hear about your Dad. I have been looking for him as I have a ring that belonged to him from Yale university. It would be great if you could get in touch. Thanks Donna

    Randomly this morning I remembered Richard. We worked together for two years at Coudert Brothers in London. He reinforced my respect when on “Wear a tie to work“ day, he wore a beautifully coloured in cardboard tie designed by his daughter. He wore it all day with great pride.

    RIP Richard you were a wonderful, kind colleague
