News From Linda Richardson (Hygilac)
« on: November 16, 2008, 01:25:36 AM »
Dear Deryni Fans and friends of Linda Richardson,

I heard from Linda today after being out of touch for some months. Sadly, her news was that her father, Rupert Samuel Richardson, passed away on the afternoon of Friday, November 14, apparently of a massive heart attack at the age of 86. It will be an especially difficult adjustment for Linda's mother, Hazel  Richardson, as she and her husband had just celebrated their sixty-fourth wedding anniversary this past June.  Linda and Hazel would appreciate all prayers and positive thoughts everyone can spare turned toward Tennessee to help them through  this sad time. They do have family nearby to help them with practical matters fortunately, so they are not having to cope with this death all alone.

Linda knew her time with her parents was limited, and so she has given them the gift of her time and attention in recent years. Between that and her job, she has had very little time to socialize and keep in touch online, but was formerly an active participant in the Deryni fan universe.  She says hello to all, and said to say that she misses being able to talk to us all, but family came first, as it should.

Melissa

If you have a way to let her know, let her know that we're thinking of her in this difficult time and that her family is in my thoughts.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
