Subject: Richard Wastling in Hospital
From: GUEST,Pete Fletcher
Date: 20 Dec 08 - 03:42 PM

Those of you who know Richard will remember that he was unwell last year just before Christmas. Earlier this week he was again admitted to hospital with increasingly severe symptoms.
It turns out that cancer has spread from in his kidneys to his liver and lungs. His condition is not operable but they are giving him dialasis.
His life expectancy is now measured in days or weeks - a few months at the outside.
I'm sorry to have to pass this news on but Richard has asked me to let people know. He is staying fairly positive given the circumstances.
He is in Ward 5 at Hull Royal Infirmary at the moment.

I have to say that I think this is sad news indeed I have always found Richard to be one of the nicest people on the Folk Sean. The only good thing is that when we meet again on the road Richard will have organized a bloody good session, of that I have no doubt. All the best to you Richard and your Family.

That's very sad - he's a lovely bloke, and even though I dont see him that often,he's always a good friend.The last time we met was at the Beverley folk club in the summer.He told me how bad his health was - but still seemed surprisingly cheerful.I hope he can be serene through his illness.

It's been great to have Rich involved with several of our projects over the last couple of years. You can listen to him sing 'Lloyd/Lord George' at the Yorkshire Garland website. This was recorded at the club last year (despite the illness).
We are all devastated. Fond regards to Rich, Jean and Lisa from Steve, Gilli, Rich and Oli. We're all thinking of you at this difficult time.

Jim and I came to the White Horse (one or other of us because we weren't both in Beverley at the same time) while we were looking after Jim's Mother around 2,000. The club was a lifeline of friendship for us then. Please pass on our best wishes.

Visited Richard yesterday at 6pm. He retains his sense of humour and timing. His daughter Lisa was there in a long ivory gown, having married Lee Robinson at 1pm in Beverley, with Jean in attendance. (all done at short notice). "Well, here's to you Mrs Robinson".. had already been sung.. and Richard saw the videop/photo clips of the ceremony.
I mentioned the Mudcat thread and he and Jean were delighted to hear of these mesages.
Best wishes

Over the last couple of days Richard developed pneumonia to add to all his other problems.
He died on the evening of Christmas Eve.
He passed away peacefully with Jean and Lisa at his bedside.

Lisa was planning to marry in June this year, but managed to rearrange the ceremony and tied the knot on Tuesday.
This gave Richard some comfort during his last days.

The whole folk community in and around Hull will miss him more than words can say.

Please, find a moment to raise a glass to Richard over the festive period.

Thanks for Anerchie Gordon, for Polly Bawn and every Dylan song you've ever sung and for the times we wished we could sing them as well as you did. We loved you and your family and our love and sympathy goes to them. You will be greatly missed and I stil can't believe you have gone.
