Uncle Ricky was like my big brother. Daddy told me to move the truck out of the barn when I just learning and told Ricky to go with me, I thought it was out of gear started the truck and ran into the barn. Daddy was so mad Ricky took the blame and I told him myself. He always took up for me Back then he left with us. He will be missed.

To many memories. To many. Especially when him n Freddie got together! My favorite is when Freddie n Ricky were drinking and they put the battery back in Diane's van backwards and blew the whole electrical system in the van. I thought diane was going to kill them. The madder she got the harder those two laughed. Lordy. Me being from the north ricky liked to say he was from the south. Always harassed me about being adam yank! Boy did I rib him when I found out he was born north of the mason dixon line! Never let him live it down. He just laughed that ricky laugh!
