Our younger years were spent at Martha Vaught School. Your brother Ken and yourself always held a special place in my life. Later your sister Patsy became a part of my later years. RIP my friend. Until we meet again! 🙏

James we have been friends since we were in diapers. We traveled a lot of roads together. We laughed, cried, went to school together and skipped classes together. We got in and out of trouble together, and yes even got drunk together. I really am sorry for that blind date I fixed you up with back in 68. I know you have never forgiven me for that one. But all these years we have known each other we have never had a cross word between us. You are the very best friend I have ever had and I will miss you more than you could ever know. No more suffering now my friend. I will see you on the other side. I hope by then you will have forgiven me for that blind date. Love you my brother!!

Your Friend Forever
Rick
