Uncle Ricky,

We are all going to miss you so much. I can still hear your voice, and your laughter in my head. I enjoyed all the jokes we use to tell each other, and the funny picture memes we would show each other, and laugh. When the family gets together now, its definitely not going to be the same. We love you ❤
