We will always remember papa rick in our hearts and minds. He was a great human being. He had a great personality and was always in a good mood no matter what. Even when we had our own problems he gave us a different way to look at things to make them not seem so bad. We will miss him dearly. WE LOVE YOU PAPA RICK

I was saddened to hear that our beloved Ricky had gone to be with the Lord. Having lost my sister Mary, I know the pain that the family is feeling at this time. I will be praying for you all and have such fond memories of growing up with all of you. I love you all and will pray that God will lay a conforting hand on you. Am jealous that he gets to see my Mama Dot and Pops before I do.
