Hello. Did Rickey pass whilst in the IDC in Bangkok?
Ralph and Nancy, I am so very sorry about the passing of Ricky. I remember him so well when I lived in Dogwood Trace where your family lived too. He was so smart and even though he was still in high school, he could talk about so many subjects. I remember when he helped me grow some tomatoes and we had so much doing that. One time we all got snowed in the neighborhood and Nancy and Ricky walked through back yards over to my house and we cooked ourselves a feast. We had so much fun. I will never ever forget little Ricky. My sincere condolences to his family.
