  4. Sheila, Words can not explain how I feel about the news I heard this morning. We only met a few years ago but you both have became very special to me. It was always a pleasure when you both would come visit with me each month. What I would not give to see Richard and call him “Trouble” just one last time. I have thought about you both almost everyday, my heart goes out to you!! Please if you need anything at all please give me a call at work, I can meet you at Fireside for some Tomato Bisque. Love your Georgetown Friend, Heather


  5. dear Sheila – to say that my friendship and association with rich was rewarding for me is a gross understatement. in the 47 years I worked with him as his cpa I only have such warm and joyful memories. I recall his days with jack schader in nyc and with cora and john in cornwall temps. rich was so meticulous with his paper work everything always balanced to the penny and was presented with such perfection. I will surely miss his warm hello and kindness over the years. his memory is a true gift to us all. with love stewart a farber
