Grieving With Gusto

RECEIVED Tue., June 2, 2015

Dear Editor,
    Oh so sad to get this news [“Slim Richey 1938-2015,” Music, June 1]. I never in my life met a man as in-the-flow and nonresistant. He is a hero of mine. Someone who showed me love, playfulness, and acceptance from the moment we met (in 1984). He gave me fiddle lessons, life lessons, showed me how to grieve with gusto and purity, played fiddle at my wedding. Every time I was in his company I learned something more about life and how to live with incredible grace. Love you, Slim. Thank you for touching my life!
