Ricky, I loved you as my own---I won't forget you---I'll Miss You, but,I also know you're up there WALKING around w/my Sis./your Mom. Tell her I said Hi & I'll see you sometime soon. Until then... Look in on Tony & me & Play a song for us. I Love You Punkin. Unk raymond & Tony

I sent a message the other day when I found out that Rick had passed but seems it didnt get on here. We, I and my kids, Tonda and Greg , enjoyed the company of you three boys when u were all in ur teen age years and I have missed seeing all of you at one time or another. It saddens me to know Rick is no longer here with us but his memories will keep him alive in our hearts for years to come. I'd like to talk to Bill and Eddie if either of you get the chance to call. And i'm sure Tonda and Greg would like to see yas too. Much love and many prayers for you as a family. Maggie
