|RICH AND MIKKI|
|"The greatest blessing in my life was to be Rich's wife. Because of Rich I have received so many benefits from the music business. The hours of watching Rich rehearse, perform, and teach have enriched my life deeply. His love for music and teaching, along with his sense of humor, kept our relationship fresh and my respect and admiration for him high. Rich's hours of practice time became hours of private concerts for me to enjoy. Thank you, Rich, for a wonderful life!"
