Richard Waters, as you may know, was a sweet, fun-loving, adventuresome instrument designer/builder, sculptor, musician who always brought magic to the moments one spent with him. Almost always with a smile, Richard knew how to enjoy life and live it to the max! He is known throughout the world for his invention, the Waterphone. So, give up a prayer, a meditation, or just a quiet thought for Richard in appreciation of his kind presence. Tom Nunn
