    I’m gonna really miss you cousin all the good times that we had can never be forgotten. I will do all I can to help look over your children and family until I see you again on the other side. Make sure you share some of them great jokes with God that you did with us down here and hook him up with some of that fire grub that you always made us. 🙏🏼 Until then have a blessed journey my brother and watch over all of us love you God bless

    Ricky was a bright spark in this world, I still hear the giggle in his laugh. He fought a tough life but he has finished the course. Sometimes God makes better choices for us than we could have ever made for ourselves, God has big plans for you kid, know that you will be missed dearly! I sure will miss that great big beautiful smile of yours rest in peace nephew. Love you!

    Cousin Rick I hope your ears are ringing up in heaven and you can hear all the words spoken and feel how much you are already missed. You will forever be on our minds and always in our hearts. I wish there was more time to make more memories but I promise at every family barbecue, every camping trip any time we get together we will pour one out for you. We love you Rick
