    I wish to convey my condolences to Marilyn, Dean and Skye, for the loss of their husband and father, Mr Geoff Richens.

    Many years have passed, however I feel still that we are family. I feel deeply saddened by the passing of Geoff.

    My love goes to you all.

    Love always,

    Cathy and I had the pleasure to work with Sgt Richens at Wollongong and he was always approachable no matter what your rank was ! He was an absolute gentleman and an old school Sergeant. Furthermore, a wealth of knowledge in his beloved traffic duties.

    Condolences to his family and may he rest in peace without further pain.
