My sincerest condolences to Mary Ann and all the family on Richard’s death. I still remember handing my daughter out to him through her bedroom window when she was a preschooler to play with Richard Joseph in the Janese’s back yard in San Francisco. He was warm, funny and always welcoming with a hearty, sunshiny laugh.
