Jennifer, I just heard about Ricky. I'm so sorry to hear this! He had a wonderful voice and a great people person personality. If there is anything I can do please let me know. I'm still in Cumberland Estates (next to my parents). My prayers are with you!

Hi Jennifer, I'm so sorry that Rick has passed away! I remember growing up on Walnoaks Rd and all the times Tracy Cross and I came up and played football at your family's childhood home with all the other neighborhood kids! You guys had the best back yard for football! He was such an easy guy to be friends with! We will all miss him! We will be thinking of Rick, but know only time will ease your loss and your pain.

I have so many great memories of Ricky while attending Northwest Jr High. The football team was a very close group, and Ricky was always right in the middle of any mischief. He was fun-loving and very gregarious.

Rest well my friend, I'll never forget you...

Jennifer,
Rick and I sang in the UT concert choir together and became very good friends. I remember coming to your house several times and meeting you and the rest of your wonderful family. We lost touch over the years, but I'll always remember how sweet and talented he was and his great sense of humor. I'm so sorry, and please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Jennifer,

Rick has been my best friend for 52 years. He was a person of immense decency and talent. My heart is broken. I will send you a personal letter as soon as I am able. Let me know if I can do anything for you.
