Richie Woods in 1974
I was just browsing your wonderful website to see how much the Island has changed, and I came across the blog of Ritchie Wood's passing in 08..I am heartsick. I sent him a Christmas card/letter this year, as I usually do, even tho I haven't heard from him in a few years. I was checking on jewelry supplies for him when we last communicated. I met Ritchie in 1974... I was snorkling in front of Paradise and he came up beside me in his Hobie cat and asked if I wanted to go for a sail... I hopped aboard and we became fast friends ... I haven't been to San Pedro since the 80's, but we've talked on the phone, he sent me a copy of his book... this is just too sad...
