Joni and Family, I know words can’t take away the hurt you’re feeling, but I want you to know how much I care. He always had a joke or a way of making me laugh when we would bump into one another. Sending you love and strength in this time of loss.

So sorry for your loss. Praying for the family.

Martha, Jeffrey & Joni, I was so sorry to hear of Ricky's passing. I have such fond memories of times gone by, playing cards, meals together and just hanging out when we all lived on Trawick Rd. Praying your own sweet memories of lovely family times will soon soften the pain and sadness of your loss. May the Lord give you comfort and strength in the days to come. Love, Starla
