Richard Kennedy died yesterday. He was only 36 years old. His father and my good friend Wally called me last night. I went straight round to the family home. Richard was a caring, creative and beautiful person. This loss will be felt far and wide. We are devastated.

I took these pictures of Richard twelve years ago in 2001.
