On Tuesday 21 June, I received an email from my brother’s wife Karen that he was in the hospital and in serious condition – he has chronic leukaemia.
I was busy with Sharon’s surgeries and getting Mini ready for Mini Meet East.
On Friday, Karen called me and we decided that I should come up. Sharon made reservations, and I was packed and ready to go on Saturday morning, when I noticed I had a missed call.
It was from Karen: Richard had died just before midnight (CDT) on Friday 19 May 2017.
