Since his death, Richard Miami has received many well-deserved kudos for enlivening the entertainment world in the Napa Valley.

As a former tour guide, I would like to mention his wonderful classes on the art, and sometimes science, of being a tour guide in our valley. Each class covered such techniques as dealing with the public, revealing history, or analyzing wines -- all delivered with his subtle sense of humor and his resonant speaking voice. Through his techniques, we came to imagine his history in the theater.

The last times I saw him were at the Tuesday Night Flicks at the Opera House. It was a joy to hear vintage films discussed in his inimitable manner. Movies weren't just filmed stories, we saw them through his eyes on the silver screen.

I didn't know he was dying. I didn't get to say goodbye. My life was circumscribed by the final illness of my husband, and I was out of touch. So this is my way of saying farewell and thank you to Richard Miami. A great light has gone out in the valley.
