The staff of Austin Family magazine wishes to express its deep and heartfelt condolences to Dr. Betty Richardson, advising editor and columnist since the magazine’s first issue 25 years ago. Betty’s son Mark Richardson died in August of complications from surgery. He was an ardent adventurer, world traveler and passionate volunteer. His long battles with cancer never dimmed the brightness of his zest for life.
Betty Richardson and her son Mark visited a tiger sanctuary in Thailand, where Mark lived for many years.
