  • Christine says:

    Our neighborhood is in tatters, everyone is hurting and a great part of our life (friend wise) is gone and it hurts, seeing that burnt out shell of a home for how ever it stands will remind us every day of our loss.

    Richard and Jason were the best neighbors anyone could have, they were open and loving and caring with everyone no matter who they were. Richard will be missed in this house for a long time and honestly I don’t think this neighborhood will be right for a long time .. so so sad, we are both heart broken.
