So, sooo sorry to hear. I feel a sense of loss, and cannot imagine the loss experienced by those who lived with, worked with, and loved him on an everyday basis. Prayers going up for them. As for Richard, he knew where he was going, so we can rejoice in that.
Richard's words (and mentoring) will live on in many of us. Some may remember him for his passion for freely sharing with others. What I will remember of him, is his passion and heart for people.
Life is short, quick reminder -
If you appreciate someone, let them know.
If you need to forgive someone, do it.
If you need forgiveness, ask for it.
If you love someone, let them know.
I had a great time reading his work and contributions on the Zone over the years. He will forever be remembered and honored as a great man. May God bring peace to him and his family during this difficult time. RIP Mr. Richard Hillard
Very sad news. Condolences to his family and friends. I've enjoyed his contributions on the PZ. Will miss his smiling face next to his posts of wisdom and thought provoking dialogues.
GBY Richard Hilliard.
