Rick McKeon is a good friend and one of my mentors. I’ve known Richard for over thirty years now and it has been a pleasure.
There are many adjectives to describe Richard: kind, encouraging, gentle, intelligent, soft spoken, humble, creative, helpful, giving, talented, and spiritual. I mainly think of him as my friend and mentor.
When I was into art he gave me brushes and high quality watercolor paper, and kind words. When I became involve with guitar and harmonica he gave me books, diagrams, CDs, and harmonicas, an ear, and encouragement. More recently as I have become engaged in writing he has given me suggestions, has directed me to web sites with information, done a little bit of editing, has prodded me to keep writing and to have a goal, and he is going to assist me in publishing my novel as an e-book.
Richard, besides being a great human being is also a man of many talents and interests. He can sing, play guitar and banjo, and teach them too. His other interests are hiking, treasure hunting, and ghost towns and old mines.
