He shared his life with Joan and said: “It is an amazing phenomenon to truly be’seen and ‘known by another human. And in Joan, I discovered someone who naturally did both.”
“An almost forty-year journey of love has brought me to the end.
He continued, “Since her stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis just two days prior to Christmas, she has been accepting, clear-sighted, sanguine, and completely without self-pity.”
He also gave praise to the Royal Marsden Hospital’s oncology staff.
Richard shared her news with friends and family via Twitter.
A video was posted by him of Joan and himself dancing to Only You.
