    I’m so sorry we lost Rickie too soon. I keep thinking about the time I babysat him as a young child. Sue had me make him biscuits and gravy for breakfast. When Rick was done, his bowl was dumped upside down on his head. He had such a beautiful smile you could never get angry at him. He kept that smile all his life. RIP Rickie. We all love you.
