Older than 90 (“We don’t want to get into that,” he says with a laugh), Ed Richards says every day for him is Christmas. Life is a gift and so is the companionship he receives from Lori’s Hands college student volunteers each week. After a career in the military, multiple higher ed degrees and a deep love of family, friends and enriching hobbies, Ed lives each day to its fullest. University of Delaware students benefit from his friendship and learning about the healthcare system outside a clinical setting.
