If this is Richard Hurcomb who took beautiful and careful care of my baby grand piano, I want to express my deepest condolescences. Richard was the only one that I trusted with my 100+ year old piano and he will be greatly missed. I loved our conversations that were deep in religion, politics and life in general. A true, genuine, kind, gentled man INDEED!
