I am so suprise messy Patty playing game like this writing on board lots of lies for Richard. Richard was living in Las Vegas without Patty, just with lots of his kids long time. Cause Richard was saying Patty was living with her boyfriend in CA. Richard was saying she was kick him out and she kicked out kids too for living with her boyfriend. Finally her boyfriend kick her ass out she had to come to Vegas for she can get some place for live free. Richard was hate to Messy Patty and he was saying Messy Patty was hating Richard too.. Messy Patty was so mess County fine to them several several times for their messy house. Even Richard was saying he lost his house in CA cause of mess. He was calling Patty is " messy patty" she still so.. messy.. getting out from houses for her mess and stinks. Every neighbors complaint about Messy Patty's mess and stinks. She was looking and waiting for praying to God Richard dies ASAP, now she is writing lots of lies, sounds like she was loving him. There is all lies.. And I really know about it Richard was hating Messy Patty. Come on Messy Patty!! don't lie anymore. You and Richard was hate each other. Go clean your mess Messy Patty. Even your boyfriend kick your nasty messy ass for your Mess, Messy Patty.

i cant sleep , need to talk to you so here i am.. i regret deeply not speaking at your memorial i had so much to say but was just too sad to find my voice . i should have said all the millions of great one of a kind things there are about u , i should have thanked you for being my everything since i was 16 yrs old . for all the happiest times of my life & for our seven amazing kids .& for thirty years of your love and devotion even when i didnt deserve it or you . i truly truly love you rick more than youll ever possibly know i am soo sooo lost without u . every day is torture . i dont want to go on without u ...life isnt worth living without u in it . the tears are endless , the pain in my heart gets worse every minute . im trying so hard to be strong like u , if god doesnt give us more pain then we can handle why did he put u thru all he did , then take u from a family that needed n loved u more than life itself .. this makes no sense ,, never will its so so so unfair Rick ,, i know how amazingly selfish im sounding but at the very same time while im acting like a complete worthless ass , feeling sorry for myself i am always praying so hard that youre at peace ,& that u always know how much your loved , there better finally.... be no more pain !! i like to think that your up there dancing w our daughter samantha like u did here with stef n stac , all i can say is that i cant wait for the day ,god brings us together again & it better be real real soon .... i love you infinity infinities ...forever and ever amen

for so long , as your caregiver I pretended to be the strong one , fooled myself that it was me that was taking care of you .. the one that was needed . in reality ...it was so the opposite , and i am absolutely nothing without you , how do i live without you ? how do i breathe without you ..? you were ,are ,and always will be my everything , my first & only love . my best friend , most loving father to our wonderful kids ,and you'll always be the greatest husband I could ever have asked or hoped for . thank you for the best 30 years of my life w you & by your side . as your wife ..we always kept our vows and we did the ...for richer & for poorer , the in sickness & in health , as well as thru good times and bad ,,,, but please till death us not part .. our love is eternal . and never ending it has to be ..... because i cant n wont make it without your love carrying me through the rest of my days till we are together again till then take good care of our baby girl and give her the biggest kiss from me . my only comfort is that i know how happy you must be right now to be with your best friends/ your nan & pop and with our baby girl .
