I grew up with Ricky. As youngsters, throughout school and as adults. Ricky has always been a caring person, good friend and a true believer in our lord and savior. He always had a smile for you. He will be missed. I'm sure I will see him smiling when I meet him and Janice at heaven's door.Rest now my friend.

I'm honored that I had the pleasure to meet Ricky on several occasions. I'm so very sorry to learn of his early homegoing. I rejoice knowing he is in the loving hands of Jesus. No more pain or suffering. Running free in the presence of family and friends.

Dear Connie, Taylor and extended family! My heart has been breaking so much since I heard the news. I had just seen Ricky last week, and he gave me a big hug goodbye before I headed back to Massachusetts. He was so greatly loved by so many people. And he really was the best person ever!!! I am so grateful that God gave me the very last year to spend so much time with Ricky after all these years!! I loved him so dearly. Im finding it very hard to go on without him because he had become such a part of my heart & soul as such a God sent friend especially since we were both grieving the loss of our spouses!!! He was so loving, caring, compassionate, tender and generous to everyone he knew!!! I know how hard this is on you especially, after losing Chuck in May. I want you to know that Im here for you if you need absolutely anything! To talk, to vent, a shoulder to cry on, any help, I mean anything!! I know he is at peace, with Janice and your mom and dad but it doesnt make it any easier. My love to you both, and then to all the other family!! I will see you all Sat. God bless and many prayers!!
