My dear friend Rudy he was like a kid when I met him he was a great man when he passed away
Rudy and Verdi were the perfect couple you can feel it as soon as you walked into their place Rudy loved that man to death a few months back Rudy asked me if I would do something for him he said if he were to pass before me he wanted me to have a bottle of champagne go visit v i r d i and celebrate the beginning of his new life I thought it was going to be hard to say those words to Verde but as I was saying them I was so proud of Rudy knowing where his heart was I'm going to miss you so much Rudy I love you kiddo

I’ve known Rudy for about 20 years. I’ve been his hair stylist for about 8-10 years. I always loved when he came in. We treated each other like brother and sister. We were loud and sarcastic towards each other and we would laugh so much. Everyone in the salon enjoyed him. He had a great heart and always positive. He gave me much needed advice. His love for Verdie was much admired by me. He will surely be missed. ❤️😘 love you Rudy
