Hey Richard I'm going to miss you. You and I shared something very special and that was the gift that we gave to each other, our son Ricky. I know that you heard me that Wednesday when I was talking to you and praying to God in the car all by myself. I had asked you to please watch over our son Ricky and our beautiful grandchildren Tylor Jacob and Caleb. I know you heard me, all I asked for was a to show me a sign a feather or something, but you did something greater you gave me a whole turkey. I was so shocked when that turkey showed up on the sidewalk not even a minute later. I'll forever hold that memory dear in my heart.
Do you remember when everyone said we, ("you, me and Little Ricky") reminded every one of the I Love Lucy show? That was a great memory you know but I'm glad that you're in heaven with Jesus and your family and I hope that you hear me again when I pray I feel sorrow too but I'm trying to get past that now just wanted you to know I love you and that you're forever at peace just like your favorite song Free Bird 🦅 until we meet again.

Building job sites and moving dirt is what Rick had in his blood.
I had Rick on many job sites. He gave 100% -

My thoughts and prayers are with all.
God Bless,

Rick was a great guy and we were blessed to have him as part of our team. This picture is from March 2018 when my brother Tom and I drove out to his job to greet him with his 20 year employee anniversary gifts. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Garrett family.

Ricky was my cousin and he always had a smile on his face just like his dad. He was so kind, caring and thoughtful. I remember him working on cars in the yard with his brother Randy, his brother-in-law James and his father every time we visited them. He always made me feel special and pretty. He will be missed so much but he is with God now and sadly to say a lot of family members. Love you Ricky - until we meet again.

Your cousin,
Rhonda

Uncle Rick
You were one of a kind. You took the place of my Daddy at the age of 14. You were the closet person to me that reminded me of my Dad. I couldn't have asked for a better person than you. I'm so blessed that my children knew who you were and had the chance to experience the unconditional love you give. I'm Happy to know you are not in pain but the presence of you will always be missed. Rest easy now I love you.
Gabby- I love you uncle Ricky I will miss you
Jada-I love you
Alicia- love you 😘
