Priscilla Posted March 9, 2009 Share Posted March 9, 2009 Rich was one of my earliest acquaintances in the Concertina world. I met him at NESI 2008 and he was my partner for one of the dances at the Saturday night Contradance. He was very gentle, cheerful, helpful as I was learning/relearning the steps, always encouraged me, always smiled, light on his feet, a pleasant person to be with on an occasion. I remember him as very kind, warm and welcoming and a good dancer, very knowledgible and helpful, had a buoyancy to him, just being around him gave you confidence, made you feel better about yourself and the world. I'm grateful to have met him where I think he was happiest, at NESI, amongst friends and encouraging beginners. God bless his soul. May we meet again someday in some form perhaps. May his spirit of kindness live on at NESI's to come. Priscilla Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
