The first thing I would like to say to the whole family is my heart and prayers are with you all in this time of grief I love you guys. I was proud to have him as a father in-law. I met Mr Rick when I was young before I married into your family. Every fourth of July the whole block got together to bbq and set off fireworks and swim such fond child hood memories. Then when I became a part of the family he treated me like just that... family. He is very loved and will truly be missed by everyone every single day including his fur babies. He is at peace flying high with the angels. R. I.P Pop <3

Dear Adams Family,
I knew Ricky before he was born, I met Ms. Pattie on Wentworth Avenue, in the Loch Raven area. Ms. Pattie and I became good friends and stayed good friends from the time I moved there. She was pregnant with Ricky, my son Jeff was three months old. They became friends soon after they could walk. I love Ricky and am glad to know he is at peace in heaven with his Mom and God. My deepest condolences to everyone! Love you all, Ms. Carole
