"We had the great joy to be at the wonderful Carol Channing birthday bash earlier this season. Richard Skipper is truly brilliant and thru him the great joy that was spread throughout the room was perfection. Thank you again. Each time I am able to be at Richard's "Celebrations" I feel uplifted and so glad that I was there".
