To all my beloved friends: Growing up in Juliette , All the children in our little village were close as brothers and sisters. We knew if we misbehaved we would have to answer not only to our parent but to the other parents as well. Ricky has been a friend of mine since the day he was born, exactly 1 day after me. Therefore I have many many memories with Ricky and his family and I thank God for them. He is now at his final home and my prayer is, God will comfort and strengthen each and every member of his family not only today but all the days ahead. I love the Speir family.
Love in Christ,
Trudy Gordon
