I have known Richard since I was born nearly 60 years ago as his mum my Auntie Marjorie was like a second mum to me and my sister. She was my god mum. We spent so many happy family holidays together - the Barkers and the Fords - and spent weeks staying in Bamford with them all. Richard so kindly attended my mum (auntie Joan)'s funeral last year and we were so pleased to see him. Richard was a lovely, kind and funny person and I was sad to hear the news that he had died after his long illness. My thoughts are with Barbara and all the family. With love Lesley x
