To the family of Ricky,
Ricky was a dear friend to me, a great and dedicated musician, and a true mentor throughout our 20 years of playing together with the Stardusters band. These were awesome years--years that we didn't make much money, but had a hell of a lot of fun!. I am so sorry I can't make the services; my driving is limited. I share your great loss.
My sincere condolences,
Jerry Caluda and the Stardusters
Dear Elaine, Lizz and family,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I never had the honor of meeting him personally but through you he sounds as if he was a great man and from knowing both of you he did a good job raising his children.No matter how prepared you think you are for a parent passing it still is so very painful. His time here is up, his job here is done so now he joins other loved ones,but know he will always be with you.Soon your grief will lessen and then all of your memories will come to you. These memories are to be cherished and help you get through this difficult time. Your father served our country and for that I am so grateful to him.My prayers are with all of you. I am sorry I didn't get a chance to come pay my respects but I am on my way to St.Judes with my Granddaughter.
I will always remember you musical trombone(Lips) that you ran around the house playing when you didn't have an instrument in hand. You were an awesome musician and an awesome man. I love you dearly and I am for ever grateful for your example of what a man of integrity looks like. Hope you and dad are laughing it up right now.
To a great man, and a great friend of Merle and Fred Brink. Many Mardi Gras was spent with him and his lovely wife Meriam. Loved him playing piano for my Dad at the Gold Room.
