Sorry to see you go Rich. At times we found ourselves on opposite sides, but you were always a Tiger and I respected you.

Rich was a man of determination. Although I only knew him for a few years, he had an impact on me. My condolences to DeAnna and Cass. I will keep rich and you both in my prayers.

If it was not for Mr. Powers, I would not be where I am today. Thank you Mr. Powers for teaching me that your best is not always good enough-you can ALWAYS do better and to reach for the stars. Thank you DeAnna for showing me what a tough woman in business looks like (how to dress, speak and act like a woman in a mans world). And Thank you Mama Kass for always being a light in my cube. All my love...
