Richard Cowsill Newport Memorial Bench Fund

Hello friends and family alike!I am writing to you today to ask for some help in raising money to help pay for my brother Richard’s Memorial bench at the foot of the hill at Kings Park in Newport!  It is just like..(well, actually a little nicer than) the one that was so generously wrangled for Billy and Barry by Tim Bartholomew and his then mate Jess!The bench cost is $975.  Tim generously advanced us the money and has already got the job done, as I wanted it in time for Richard’s May 12th memorial and party!  If this was next year we, the family, would be paying for it ourselves with our Happy Together Tour monies, but..the time is now, so here’s what you do if you would like to help!  Just click on the Donate button and enter whatever amount you’d like to give.

Wow! Three days is all it took to raise the requested funds! Thank you all so much!  And for those of you joining us May 12 for Richard’s Memorial, don’t forget to go sit on your bench!

Much love,

    Darling Susan – this is all a little stunning to me, as I didn’t even know that Richard had died. Wow. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

    Will try to send a donation to do my part.

    Much love,

    I loved Richard. With his friendliness and openness, he had a fan club all his own, rooting for him. His energy and the love he had for so many things is so missed. There can only be and will only be, one Richard Cowsill. He is a star in the sky, shining brightly.

    Cannot wait to see you & older brother Bill on Happy Together Tour on June 20th at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida. I will always remember your mother-Barbara.
