I served with Ricky and Eva on the Granby Fire Department many years ago. Ricky was a dedicated member and a person I could trust while on the fire line. He had a unique sense of humor and I never heard him use any foul language. He was a man I always considered a friend. I hope he is resting at peace. Well done, our good and faithful servant. Sincere sympathies to the entire family.

So very sorry for the loss to your family. I am sorry for the empty spot in your life Eva. I am sure you have many wonderful memories, and I am sure Rick would want you think on them more than the not so good ones. Just know I am thinking of you and praying for that peace that only GOD can provide.

Thank you for all the delicious meals you cooked for us, the shared recipes, the car bodywork repairs, helping assemble our swing and bathroom sink, driving us around to garage sales and finding neat treasures! And best of all...taking good care of my little sis and the boys all these years. We will be here for them awhile longer. May God bless and reward you many times over. You were a wonderful friend and I will miss you very much. Robert and Linda.
