I am so sorry to hear this. My father had a similiar problem. And I, as a former smoker, for many years, know how dificult it is to quit. Thank goodness I did --about 25 years ago. Take care of yourself Richard.

I still hope to meet you when I come from the States to Chiswick to visit my daughter. I adore(d) your "Good Neighbors" series and have all of them. You are a very funny man.

Sincerely,
