Im just now seeing this and people you are all wrong. Who are you to bash someone when you didn't live with them or grew up with them? My brother had some issues with our family in va and other mental issues but his wife stuck by him. She is a very strong woman and the family is with her all the way. I miss my brother but he has talked about suicide for many years. Just didn't think he would do it. My niece is doing good and so is the rest of the family. But don't get on here talking trash about my sis in law. She is not an evil person nor was she never involved in an affair at the time. Rumors come from ignorant people. Only GOD knows the truth. We don't. You assumers. We are not allowed to judge and for the two who left these post, GOD sees you!!! You are trying to hurt people who were not involved and that includes me because she is my family. This is a sad situation but we must go on with our lives. So may God have mercy on your soul for putting such garbage on here and for the one who said you knew them, no you didn't or you wouldn't have wrote that. He was sick we tried to help him. You then say cheating but it was him not her. No one can make you kill yourself. He should have stayed for his children. Kia, you know we love you and yes it has been a year but no one hates you. God knew it was gonna happen. We stick together. I wish i could find out who these two are. I have someone that works in the news department so maybe we can sue for slander.

I've been friends with the both Richard and Chaila(Kia) for 18 years and they both good people.Richard cheated on Kia repeatedly back home in VA he moved his family out to NC for a job.Before then he was a cart pusher making minimal wage Kia always financial took care of their family they both were to happy when he made Manager now he could rely bring home nigh bucks.Richard cheated on her again in NC with a coworkers she begged him to leave his job he refused.Over time she had enough all the years had built up and she was tired.With him being abused by his parents Pastor Richard Roberts and mom which he was in counseling for.His parents wasn't even talking to him because he called them and asked for them to apologize to him and they refused.His parents destroyed him years ago he was just a calm time bomb waiting to explode.I know there could have been a better solution.God bless them all.

Listen whomever wrote these post we are now going to court. How dare you insinuate that my mother was having an affair with a woman at the job! My dad was wrong in what he did. My dad had so much pain from his past years. He attempted to kill himself numerous of times in va. He was a mental ward and everything. My mother was the one taking him back after he cheated on her so many times. I don't have to explain myself to you fools. Who was questioned? No one. I've been there the whole time and detectives sought no wrong. Now girlfriend? Hilarious. I bet whoever post this just hateful and jealous of my mom. She has money, nice cars and own homes. And they were all hers when he was alive. It was an open and shut case because he killed himself you idiots! This is not acceptable. If you read the papers and watched the news it was between husband and wife! There were no outsiders. Its a shame. You will not bash my mom. I can't wait to find out who you all are. How would you like it if someone did something to your family or bash them? You negative people! My mom tried to help him. We all did. I miss my dad. He shouldn't have tried to kill my mom or himself. That was stupid of him. My dad always hurt her with these women. He came down here and had affairs with women at his job. You wanna call my mom dark and evil? Ok. Dark and evil is what he did and what my family can do. So now its right to kill someone or yourself if things are not going right? Im a man and i stand on my own feet. Every since i was born my mom bought cars and house. My mom always kept money. Lots of it. So for you to say she is money hungry yes she is! He never bought nothing. She had all the money. Don't post up here you knew my dad because if you did you would have known he was sick. Yes he smiled all the time but he was sick. Suicide been in his mind since I was 12. My mom face the family everyday. So what forgiveness? No one ever blamed her for his actions. Im so mad because he couldve been a better man. You just dont kill people. He always had that rage. Dad I love you. You know you were wrong but i can't judge. Mom is doing well and so is everyone else. I know you would never allow anyone to talk about mom so Im gonna handle this for you.
