Hi, I worked with Ridsdale (Rids) many years ago on the Concorde project in Toulouse. I have always wanted to get in contact with him again and was greatly saddened and shocked to read your note that he had since passed away.
I would like you to know that for me Rids was the kindest, most generous,and considerate person I have ever known and it was an honour to have been associated with him. He was always willing to offer help to anyone.
We worked hard but had great times together and I am sure Toulouse nightlife will never be the same!
