Rich, though we never met I feel that I know you. Belinda always spoke of you and of all the fun things you two did. Belinda was a special lady to many people. After Belinda retired doing what she loved doing, I started having Tonya do my hair, she is so much like Belinda. You and your family have my deepest sympathy at this sad time.
