Judy and Family,
Tommy thoroughly enjoyed working with Rickey - there was never any doubt regarding how they felt about one another - utmost respect - and they had so many laughs together! Sometimes I couldn't wait for Tommy to get home so that I could hear a story or two. Wherever Rickey went, he was a blessing.

I always looked forward to seeing Rick at church. He had a great sense of humor and I will miss this dear man.
