I cherish our childhood Rick! So many wonderful memories! Please tell mom and Honey I think of them every day and miss them so much! Give them the biggest hug from Sibby and me! Give lots of hugs and kisses to our pups that will be waiting at the bridge for you! They all loved you! You were a lover of animals! I will miss our talks during football season.

It’s so hard to type this but I loved Rick too. We all grew up together, were in each other’s weddings and the bond and blood we all have is very strong. Friends are friends but first cousins are forever. I’m so sorry Ricky, Sib, Terri, Honey and JIm for your loss. Rick will be in my heart always. Love you all!
