  4. A great lost to humanity , he was my surgeon which lead to several sucessful recoveries . He who feels it knows it . RIP Doc.


  5. His passing, coming so soon after he received a 2016 St. Lucia Medal of Honour (Silver), could cause one to conclude that he received the Award on his death bed. They were trying to avoid the "Dead Hero Society" label so there was a rush to honour him is his last weeks or days.
    Rest in Peace Dr. Richardson and my condolences to his family and friends.


  6. There will never be another doctor like Dr. Richardson there may never be a word to describe this well mannered and discipline professional character may god bless him and his family may he rest in peace doc thank you you will always be remembered


    • Shut the hell up. What do you mean you hope he passed it on? He was a lecturer for Christ sake....obviously he passed it on. Always want to come around with judgement.
