      Thank you for taking the time to remember him in this way; we are grateful for your donation to Mind in memory of Dad. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the empathy, compassion and support you have given the family; at such a difficult time, it is so greatly appreciated. 

      Our family are at a loss for words to so eloquently express our grief for the loss of Richard's light in our lives as well as Dad would have done, so we would like to share with you the following Metta Sutta from the Dhamma Dipa Buddhist teachings that Dad strove so very hard to live his life by: 

      This is what should be done

      By one who is skilled in goodness, 

      And knows the path of peace: 

      Let them be able and upright, 

      Straightforward and gentle in speech, 

      Humble and not conceited,

      Contented and easily satisfied, 

      Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. 

      Peaceful and calm and wise and skillful, 

      Not proud or demanding in nature. 

      Let them not do the slightest thing 

      That the wise would later reprove.

      Wishing: In gladness and in safety, 

      May all beings be at ease. 

      Whatever livings beings there may be; 

      Whether they are weal or strong, omitting none, 

      The great or the mighty, medium, short or small, 

      The seen and the unseen, 

      Those living near and far away, 

      Those born and to-be-born - 

      May all beings be at ease!

      Let none deceive another,

      Or despise any being in any state. 

      Let none through anger or ill-will 

      Wish harm upon another. 

      Even as a mother protects with her life 

      Her children,

      So with a boundless heart 

      Should one cherish all living beings; 

      Radiating kindness over the entire world: 

      Spreading upwards to the skies, 

      And downwards to the depths; 

      Outwards and unbounded, 

      Freed from hatred and ill-will. 

      Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down 

      Free from drowsiness, 

      One should sustain this recollection. 

      This is said to be the sublime abiding. 

      By not holding to fixed views, 

      The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision, 

      Being freed from all sense desires, 

      Is not born again into this world.
