Dear Maggie and family,
I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I will remember Rick fondly from a time long past.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can still remember the many good times as a kid spent together with my Dad and both you and Rick - having fun, the parties, the times at the lake and on the boat. Rick was a master at the ring toss game to both me and my brother... I am sure Tom and Rick will be meeting up soon on the other side to share a cold one...
God bless

To the family of Ricky from the oldest of the Gracely girls. I am sure that Ricky, John and Lamont were in Bible school when I taught. I can still see Irvin walking back to his house after helping my Dad with some kind of work at my Mom's house. Ricky came to my garage sale last year. We will never forget the Castagnera family.

To the family of Ricky, as I knew him as a child. So sorry to hear of your loss. We lived next door to each other and our families were close, especially our Dads. They helped each other and we all had fun together. I will always remember the Castagnera Family. Darlene (Leney Gracely) Hatcher.
