To the Sullivan Family - we were all so sad to hear this news about Ricky. I remember all the great times we had playing street hockey together when we were growing up in the South St. / Emmett St. area of Marlboro. We saw Ricky last when we had dinner at his Pub. He always had that smile on his face. Our hearts go out to your family. -- Chris and The DiRado Family, Rose, Stephen and Gina.
