“I think we were so passionately in love with each other that the highs were too high. It was almost like everything was too much. We loved each other almost too much - it sounds silly. But it was so intense, that it was almost abnormal.

When she received the news of Richard’s death, she fainted. Later, she would say, "I was still madly in love with him the day he died. I think he still loved me, too.

She realised that "she would never hear his voice again, or see his face, his eyes…..If I hadn’t been to Betty Ford before his death, I don’t think I’d be around. I loved him for twenty-five years." Elizabeth on the death of Richard.
