Richard Wanted To End It All
Since Richard had been in a relationship with Kate for over 23 years, he felt that she had done the worst thing possible to him, as he believed that he had fathered three beautiful sons. To make things worse, Richard started dealing with the symptoms of cystic fibrosis, which made him even more stressed.
Richard was thinking of ending his life as he had felt betrayed, but luckily his second wife Emma was there to comfort him. Richard stated that if his wife Emma was not by his side at this point in his life, he would have committed suicide as the stress and pressure were too much to handle. Emma was more than willing to help her husband, as Kate hurt him in many ways.
