I am so grief stricken and my heart is broken to hear Rags is gone.  My prayers and thoughts are with you Allison, Hope, and Mary Ann.  I miss you guys very much.  If I can do anything I am always here for you.  I wish I had known, I'm sorry I did not get to show my respect to Rags, but I did not know.  I love you all. Ricky was always such a sweet guy and always nice to me.

I'm so sorry to hear Rickey's passing, we graduated together. I haven't seen him since our last class reunion, but I always enjoyed talking to him when I did see him. Thinking of your family at this time.
