My sincere condolences and prayers for The Richardson Family and Friends, especially those of you that were neighbors in The Hood. A tilted Kangol Hat on his head, fast talking at times, a grin that showed pearly white teeth and sparkling eyes has become Heaven's gain.
I remember speaking to you all each time that I passed you in my youthful days. May comfort and understanding engulf your hearts in God's Unchanging Hands. AMEN, AMEN.

To the Family and Friends of Ronald Richardson (Moosie).

I was so shock to read of Moosie passing and my hearts goes out to each of you. He was such a nice and loving person who loved dancing. Moosie and I would run into each other at they YWCA on 15th Ave. all the time. My most fond memory of him, he still wore his caps tip to the side where he most known for.


My condolences to you and praying that God will give you strength and be your handkerchief for you tears. RIP Moosie because you'll be truly missed.

My deepest condolences to the family of Moosie. My fondest memory is him walking down Fillmore St. passing up my grandma’s house (1574) and he would give my cousins and I money to go to Papa Adams. Let’s not forget the way he wore them Kangols. Rest easy. You’ll definitely be missed.
