I am deeply saddened by the sudden passing away of Richard. The sudden loss of loved ones is shocking and creates overwhelming sadness. I share these feelings with the family. I worked with Richard on a few projects some years ago. I will never forget his kindness, helpfulness, and human warmth. Not to forget his technical expertise which helped us to solve challenges we were faced with in our joint projects. With my deepest sympathy,
Very Sincerely,
Matthias Hellblau
