It is shock to lose such a wonderful man. He always had a smile on his face and dearly loved his kids and his Mom. He truly is in heaven. My boyfriend and I will miss him. We pray that his family can believe God wanted him to come home, but it is still so so sad. God bless you all.

Our prayers go out to Dorothy, Kayla, Alyssa, and the rest of the Jackson family. Our family owes so much to Rick he in reality helped give our son Jack to us we love him and miss him dearly.-- Michelle Bibbo.
The night Rick died I had a dream I was standing in the front room of Dorothy's house and he had a dress shirt and tie on. He was on the steps and I looked at him and asked "where are you going all dressed up" and he replied " I'm going to church" and then he walked up the stairs to Heaven.--Robert

To the family of Ricky: I am so sorry for your loss. I'm sure it was a complete shock to all that knew him. For those of you that don't know me, I used to work with Rick at Tom's and have known most of the family for many years. I have been praying that God will help all of us through this time of sorrow, especially his mother. I'm thinking of her the most. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.
