We all mourn the passing of Ricky because he was a decent and humane person. The hospitality that he and Patty showed whenever any of us visited was truly remarkable. We always felt comfortable and I can recall many fun times. With the passing of time and circumstances our lives change however the memories we cherish are everlasting. Personally I thank Patty and Ricky for their kindness and empathy they gave Ann in her final days. May he rest in peace... Carl

Dear Patty, Bruce, Maria & Family,
Rick was a wonderful brother-in-law, a dedicated husband to Patty and a loving, caring person to all. He welcomed everyone to his house in Spring Hill. Short stay- long stay - he was the perfect host who couldn't do enough for you. And he loved and treated Kay, his mother-in-law, as if she were his own. And he made the best ice cream cones! Patty will miss you as will we all. God bless you, Rick, and rest in piece now with your mother, father and Kay.

Dear Aunt Patty, I was so sorry to hear of Uncle Ricky’s passing. What a lovely man he was. We often reminisce about all the silly fun times we had with all of you. One memory that sticks in my mind is when Uncle Ricky tried to fill the blow up mattress with the leaf blower! Oh we all laughed so hard! Or when he couldn’t stop bouncing Marco on his knee or he’d cry. We know that time and distance has kept us out of the loop. Even so we love you both and are praying for you especially now. Just wanted to let you know across the miles we are sending love and our deepest condolences.
