Well, one must realize we are at a critical point in the year. People try to make one more Christmas in their life. They do or in Richard's case, come close.

In this last week of the year, we are probably going to see more.

At 96, Richard certainly had his time. As the article says, he had been ailing. Let us celebrate his life and not feel sorry for his passing.

One of the saddest books and indeed songs (Bright Eyes by Simon & Garfunkel) ever.

RIP Richard Adams.
