Tony & Tony Scott there are no words to express how truly sorry I was to here of Richards passing . No that you are in my thoughts today. God Bless

Richard has been my best friend, companion, and confidant for many years! We know one another inside and out and he has always been there for the people he cared for. I am so lucky to have had Richard in my life and the Love he has shown me will never be forgotten. A man like Richard is extremely rare and priceless and our relationship is the kind of thing that only comes around once in a lifetime and thanks to him I’ve experienced this unconditional love that I will no doubt never encounter again in this life. I will forever and always love you so much… Jasper and I both will miss you and I will be sure to express to him how he was once blessed to be cared for by such an outstanding person who would have done anything to make him happy. Rest easy because all is now well where you are ! <3
