Everyone who knew Ricky was so familiar with the ever-present smile on his face and how he was invariably in a good mood. He was so kind to my family and me over the years, and now he's spreading his warmth, good humor, and perpetual smile to everyone in Heaven.

So sorry Jennifer. Your dad was one of my teachers in high school ..
I knew RIC in early 70's when we were neighbors in New houses. But I visited Opelousas and Ric several times after you two got married. He was a great guy and he told me how much he loved you the last time we visited..
RIP my friend RIC
and GOD BLESS you and your family at this time.

Jennifer, Henrietta and I were shocked when Stephanie told us last night at the UL game, that her mom, Claire was sending us a message about Ric's passing. Jennifer, you, the girls and family are in our thoughts and prayers. While saying this does not make things any easier, God clears a path for us, allowing us both success and failure, but in the end it is up to us to find that path. We trust Ric found his is now in heaven with God.
God Bless you and family
