I met Richard many years ago when I stopped for sunflowers and wildflowers he was selling off the farm.
I left later than day with many antique goodies that I purchased from him. We enjoyed talked about the farm, his lab and his antique shopping.
Heaven gained an angel to watch over all of us

We are so sorry for your loss. We would run into Richard at flea markets and enjoyed the time we spent talking antiques and about traveling in England with him.
