  7. To Ann and the rest of the family;
    I know what you are feeling at this time but try to remember all the good times you shared with Ricky, all the times he cut up or made you smile because he is at peace now. And I know he is with God and smiling that big smile. He is safe and being welcomed home. My prayers are that God will, in time, ease your burden and pain and let you know that he is still watching over you all. Love to the family.
