Very sad news. She and Derek ran a great club in the 60s and 70s and I had the impression Richard appreciated their efforts. They made it possible to keep up with Richard's activities and new records in a way that in those pre-internet days couldn't have happened otherwise.

During the 60s and 70s, I wrote a column about Richard in the Days fan club mag "Penniman News". They were a great couple. It was sad when they split.
Early in 1969 Richard brought them to the States (Reno, Los Angeles) for Christmas and several weeks in Lake Tahoe. Bumps Blackwell was their host. They named their son after Richard.

I was not privileged to know her, but my reading and conversations with other Richard fans have shown me how much she loved LR and how devoted she was. Rest in peace, Veronica.

Richard Lover!
