Deeply saddened to read this unexpected news about the loss of Richard Tingen.  Although I was just an acquaintance, I always found him to be kind, charming and charismatic.  I certainly do enjoy the monthly Ojo Del Lago which he created and have tremendous admiration and respect for him.  So very sorry for this loss, thinking of his family during this difficult time.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Tingen.
