  1. What a loss to all that surrounded Ricky..
    right down to his beautiful cat, Bella !!!!

    I had the opportunity to speak with Ricky on a daily basis…

    We catered to every whim it may have been…
    From sending up his snacks to picking up his medicine…when his Mom couldn’t…

    We kept a watchful eye on him…

    Losing him will only create an empty heart for all of us…
