To all the family: you are all in our thoughts and prayers! Ricky will be greatly missed my many and will always remain in our hearts. Hold tight to all the great memories you have of him and hopefully this will help you get through the tough times. Now that he has his heavenly wings, he will always watch over you until you see him again. God needed another angel to watch over the family. I'm sure Delores was waiting with open arms to greet him! What a glorious day it will be when we see them again! Love and prayers to you all. Lee, Rhonda, Katie & Travis Presnell
