Richard Garstang was so tall, that if a shortie like me wanted to look him in the face, I had to look almost straight up! But that's okay, for he was someone worth looking up to. His heart was as big as his frame was tall, and his spirit as great. He had the ability to show you the world through his eyes, and that world was so incredibly beautiful.
I don't know quite when it happened, but at some point he began to think of himself as a Pakistani. He told me once that he was actually startled when someone indicated that he was from somewhere else. If, somehow, his spirit is here and can see this website, I hope he knows how grateful we all are for everything he did, and that all of us, his friends, will remember him, respect him and love him, forever.
