Will miss you Ricky; I really enjoyed the decade plus I worked with you and your mother. You are one of the most kindest, endearing souls I've known. Your enthusiasm for things that adults overlook was infectious-like the birds singing and the smell of cookies baking. You were one of the best listeners I know and will be forever gratful for that. I know God will welcome you with open arms. Whenever I go to the fair or McDonald's; I'll think of you. Love, Barbara
