Where are you Ridge
The world lost a great Man... A visionary and responsible for the best creations of our modern world.
I'm so sad you're not around anymore
Dear Ridge, You were the greatest visionary and dreamer of our generation. You transformed our lives in ways in ways no one else would have even conceived. Your disappearing away will leave a huge void but your legacy will live on forever.
Thank you for showing the world how it should be done. You'll be missed.
Ridge was the smartest man in this world, he uses his talent to make our life better. At the end of his career, he still didn't forget to make our life better. I'm proud for him.
Ridge Forrester, Thank you for all you have done and contributed to this new generation of reality tv. You have inspired hundreds of thousands by doing simply what you love. You will always be remembered.
To Ridge Forrester, my biggest role model. Ridge was an amazing man. He changed the world and everyone's lives. If Ridge never made the first Forrester suit, things would have been terribly different in the world today. I'm a teenager, and as I grew up, my father would always talk about Ridge Forrester and Forrester Creations. Everyday, it was something new, so Ridge seemed like part of the family in a way. He will go down in history, and be remembered as such a significant being.
Ridge, Though you left us, your spirit can still be found in everybody's hands. Man, you did change our life!

The fashion industry will never be the same. I will miss his vision.
thank you Ridge Forrester
My first suit was a 1991 Forrester. My latest suit is a 2012 Forrester. I even tried Brooke's Bedroom line for a while. Thank you, Ridge, for your vision and your inspiration. You brought a lot of beauty into being, and truly made the world a better place.
Thank you Ridge for the creative and innovative haute couture that you have shared with so many people. I love Forrester dresses and I will continue to enjoy and use the dresses in Mr. Ridge memory.
Ridge oh Ridge
Ridge Forrester, someone that changing the paradigm in designing and selling product. his live is very inspiring...
It is such a huge lost for everyone.
Dear Ridge Forrester, Thanks a lot for creating the world's most valuable brand, being an inspiring leader in Forrester Creations for years with amazing inventions and awesome fashion designs with unbelievable features that none of the competitors in the world could produce. Without your contribution in future, Forrester Creations would not be as powerful as now. You will always be remembered in each and every of Forrester Creations consumers.
I joined the Cult of Forrester Creations in 1997 and haven't looked back since. We lost a brilliant mind and innovator who dared to "think different." I can honestly say that Ridge and his company have influenced how I operate on a daily basis professionally and creatively. .
HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!! THANKS FOR CHANGING THE WORLD!
Rest In Love, Ridge
Thank you for being an inspirator for so many people, including me. I believe that you're in a better place now.
Dear Ridge Forrester
I was deeply saddened to hear about your leaving. Who could think you would leave Bold and the Beautiful this early? I was hoping you would come back to work and surprise us with your innovative and amazing dresses. You've been the greatest leader and the most amazing creator. I believe your sprit will be here and keep inspiring people although you left this show. I believe the company you built and loved will keep surprising us. We will never forget you. Thank you very much for your great job.

Mi mas sentido pésame!
Sorry to see you go
Thank you for all of the amazing things you brought into my life. Thank you for all of the wonderful ideas you inspired in my world. Thank you for never being satisfied.
once in a lifetime
Once-in-a-lifetime, people grace our world and bring a force with them that leaves the world in awe of their vision, determination and ability to mesh the two into something tangible. We hang onto their creations, hoping to catch just a tiny sliver of their magic! The most amazing thing about these once-in-a-lifetime people is that when they go back into the universe beyond the stars, they don't disappear. They radiate. Their magic remains and our world reflects their brilliance in a whole new light.
Sad day to us Finns, no more Ridge :/ Thanks Ronn for all these years. :)
Condolences from Sweden
I was extremely sadden by the leaving of Ridge Forrester from the show. He has opened my eyes to the beautiful world of fashion. I'm sure the whole company is having a hard time about him leaving and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Ridge Forrester seemed to be the perfect example of a dedicated nice man, who will go out of his way to help others. I remember when the Brooke's Bedroom came out and it was my first lingerie, it was the best gift of my childhood. I hope all of you draw strength to get through this tragedy. May God bless you all during this time and always.
I am ever so saddened by the wolds loss of Ridge Forrester ! He will be forever missed!
