I really didnt care much for Richard and found him awfully pompous during the time he was working, a definate "luvvie"
However, he and his wife have suffered greatly in the tsunami tragedy losing so many loved ones, I felt so sorry for them both and now they are nearing the end of their lives, wish them a peaceful and comforting time.
They are lucky they are able to fund their care and this isnt available to all who have worked just as hard all their lives but one would wish that their final hours are kept within their family circle and not headlines in the papers.
I think he'd give all his money to have his health and that of his wife back, and to have his daughter and granddaughter by his side.
Money means nothing
in situations like theirs.
