My family and I moved in across the street when I was five. Our families became close so quickly. Spending days and weekends together, us girls playing with barbies while the boys wrestled or did something dumb. I remember my parents one day took a trip and I couldn’t stop crying. You told me “hey you’re here all the time. Go have fun with the girls, you’ll be okay”, wiped my tears and pushed me into the living room where Brittany and Brianna were sitting. You told so many stories during our talks, about your own family and what it was like growing up. You brought so much joy where ever you went. Teaching my family what true family is, and that’s what we were. You called all of us your grandkids and we couldn’t be more thankful. Thank you for bringing my family some of the best years, we miss you and love you so much Grandpa.

Dear Rico Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of your family from my days at Walnut Hill. Your dad and mom demonstrated what families are all about - love, kindness and caring about each other. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. May your wonderful memories of your dad bring you comfort in the days ahead.

I remember sitting in the kitchen working on my art project when I was in high school. You showed me how to draw a beautiful and fast tree. You then went on to tell me the story of you sledding down a hill when you were younger. The police officer told you if he caught you sledding down the hill and into the street again that he would take your sled. I remember us laughing and then listening to music. We shared the same interest in music even with the age gap between us. I remember you wrestling with us kids when we were younger and then saying you were gonna “get us” when you got older. Every time I left the house when I moved out I yelled “bye love you!” To you and grandma because you never know when the last time you’re ever going to say that to someone. Rest In Peace grandpa. I love you.

My dad I was so beyond blessed to have you in my life. I remember waking up early in the morning and you would be up drinking coffee getting ready to work at the bakery. I remember every Friday night you and mom would go shopping and when Leslie and I got home there would always be Burger King or something ese in the oven waiting on us. You told me I would always have a place to call home and you kept your promise. I use to love to see what you would draw and how you would laugh when Mom tries to teach us to do the electric slide. How proud you were of your kids and grandkids. You have good advice and always asked me about the weather when I moved away. There are to many memories to say but I will always keep them locked away in my heart. Go rest high on that mountain until we meet again. Thanks could never say enough for all that you have done for me. Love you Dad save me a seat.

David was about13 when I first met him. I married his sister, Loretta, in 1958. They remained close until her death in 1997. I guess I'll always remember him as a much younger brother-in-law but he was only 5 years younger. My love and prayers go out to the entire Rico family.
