    Worked with Ricky, Janice and Mr. Bob for years. Had no idea he was sick or had passed. Prayers for his family and friends. He was a good man and he and Janice were a great couple.! God needed another Angel

    To my BIL- I will miss you and our banter- loves your smile and your humor – you were always supportive and had great advice when I needed it. My heart hurts that you and Sissy didn’t get a real chance at retirement but I know you are much better in Heaven. Say Hi to all our loved ones gone before especially Mom and Paw! Love you so much…big hugs until we see each other again…

    So many memories going through my mind since I got this news the other day. Backyard basketball games on Farrah St, the bike rides, you riding your unicycle, you and Billy getting the apartment and getting robbed in your sleep, me getting ketchup on the sleeve of your baby blue tux after Billy’s wedding, and then years later, you coming to mine and David’s house in Mississippi with Stacy and going hunting with David. So sad for the lose. Prayers for Janice and the family.

    My first nephew. I was 13 when he came home from the hospital– a Christmas present! I had the joy of watching him grow up, learning to ride a bike,, then learning to ride a bike on one wheel, then a unicycle! His life is a testimony of God’s loving grace and he will be missed; however, our loss is his gain. To my niece Janice, to Stacey and loved ones, I am praying for you. Love and hugs!

    Enjoyed having Ricky as a brother in Christ. His smile was contagious and his sense of humor was on the mark. I will miss him and know he has gained his spiritual reward.
