Dick is 80?!?! Good grief!  I remember him (and Winifred, of course) well from my time in Physics (undergrad 1971-75, then postgrad 1975-78).  He was partly responsible for my initial direction as an academic.   Roger Cowley caused my fascination with condensed matter  and Dick fired me up about Optics.  The result was a foray into Raman Spectroscopy. Eventually, I had to jump ship into Electronics to get a job(!), bidding Physics a fond farewell in the early 1980s.

Please pass on my love and greetings to both Dick and Winifred.
