I am very sorry to hear of Ricky's passing. He played a huge role in my childhood. We romped all over 'Monkey Hill', rocked for hours on that old back swing under the grape vines pretending it was a jet. or something and sometimes we stole apples from the neighbor's backyard, (mostly if they were already on the groud.) We played forever in Ricky's garage and would sleighride across the street until we couldn't feel our hands or feet anymore. My mom always sent me to his mom to made my clothes fit just right. I will never forget you, Ricky. Never!
