The 61-year-old resurfaced at a Hollywood event, looking satiated.
Richard Carpenter

In 2003, Karen and her parents were exhumed from Forest Lawn Memorial Park and re-interred at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park in Westlake Village, Calif.

Looking 'satiated.' I had to laugh. Are the writers trying to build their vocabulary? So often the comment is inane. Why don't you just show the person, their name, and where the photo was taken, and let readers make up their OWN minds?

The loss of Karen Carpenter was a huge blow to the music industry and a tragedy to her fans. She was easily one of the best vocalists of all time. The loss to Richard must have been monumental and beyond comprehension to anyone else. I wish him all the best.

My kids went to school with Richard and Mary Carpenter's kids. I always felt that Richard was a very caring and giving individual. He was at his kids' school events, even helped at the Christmas play on the piano. It was a real treat for us parents who truly knew the magic of the Carpenters to listen to Richard playing Christmas music before a small audience. I think its evident by his long marriage and his happy kids that Richard is a classy person. And if you are not aware of his generosity just come by the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza someday and see the results of the Carpenters generous gift to the community. Hope we all have a chance to know people like this in our lifetimes!

I'm only 32 now, and I'm a huuuuuuuge Carpenters fan. I don't even know why! I totally missed the boat when they were big in the 70's, but I got turned on to their music in the 90's and never looked back. I swear if I could bring one deceased celebrity back to life, it would be Karen. It's wonderful to see Richard looking so well, and I love seeing other people share their thoughts and memories in these comments!
