Been awhile since i seen you , I moved away and grew up in life . Memories is what I do remember living next door with my father Ernest Jr. And he always pushed family, no matter what . I ran away plenty of times as a kid hopping the fence to run over to Grace & Jean house to escape a whipping laughing. Also enjoyed those peanut butter sandwiches . Leaving on a positive note , you can rest and enjoy yourself now .

To Ricky and family. I was extremely sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. We worked together many years at the post office. She was truly a precious sweetheart. Always a kind word for everyone. You and I go all the way back to Midtown Little League. I remember her cheering you on when you would strike me out. May Father God give you a peace and comfort that only His children can understand. God bless you my brother.
