  • Hello Patricia, before i joined this site I spent some time reading the posts, it was Kingys sense of humor, he made me smile when I,d forgotten how to smile, & that made me want to be here, his was always the first post I,d read when I logged in, there is often sadness & fear here but KOTC's jokes made us remember we are still human beings with a need to laugh,

    Thank you so very much for sharing Richard with us all, as you can see from the posts here, we too "loved" him in our own way,

    Keeping you & your family & friends in my prayers

  • Dear Patricia and family. It is comforting knowing your husband was so loved. My partner who passed away with the same thing in the same amount of time, was very much like him, always trying and managing, to make someone smile no matter what was going on for them.

    He was the Kingpin, number one on here and we all miss him. xxx
