I'm so sorry to hear of Rickys passing. Loosing a loved one is never easy. I recently lost both my parents. After my losses, reading Revelation 21:3,4 gave me real comfort. It says: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. And Isaiah 25:8 promises: He(God) will swallow up death forever. Gods word offers us real hope for those who have died. I hope reading these verses also gives you a degree of comfort and hope during this difficult time. jw.org

Jennifer was sad to hear that we lost Ricky. She knew him from working at the Easter Seals Adult Training and Wellness Center, in Little Rock, and, from other activities, around Arkansas.
Ricky will be missed by all who knew him, as a sweet, and, friendly guy. He enriched our lives in so many ways, and, we were blessed to have known him.
Condolences to his family and friends. Ricky will live on, in our hearts.
Jennifer Mahler, and,
