“I just wanted to thank everyone who paid their respects for my brother. The last few days weren’t easy but we’re so thankful for all of our family and friends who supported us in this tragic time & celebrated Richie’s life,” Rose wrote. “I know Richie would even be surprised to see how many people cared about him and loved him. Still feels like a bad dream. RIP Richie.. we love you.”
The funeral service was held this past Monday.
Mandy Rose has not appeared on NXT TV for the past two weeks due to the passing of her brother but is expected to return soon.
