Memories Timeline


  1. Ricky, Rachele, and Family, You have our sincere condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers everyday.

  2. So sorry to hear about this….Rick and I were friends way back….I remember Darlene well, too. Deepest condolences to the family.

  3. Ricky, Rachele and Family, With deepest sympathy. Our hearts go out to you in your time of sorrow.

  4. May you all feel God's peace at this time. Ricky and I were classmates at AHS. He was a nice guy! Prayers being sent your way.

  5. You have my sympathy on the loss of your loved one. Please allow God to comfort you through His promise to care for our dead loved ones at John 5:28,29. It's so stressful to deal with the death of a loved one because Death was never supposed to be a part of life so God didn't create us with the ability to be content with this loss but our loving creator, Jehovah God, promises to do away with death {Isaiah 25:8} and the one who causes death Satan{Hebrews 2:14} real soon through His Kingdom in the hands of His Son Christ Jesus so that His purpose for mankind can be realized which is to live on a paradise earth under perfect and peaceful conditions. {Genesis 1:27,28; Psalms 37:9-11,29}

  6. Our dearest sympathy at this time for your family. Ricky was a great man and a hard worker and will be missed greatly. We have your family in our prayers and I hope the great memories and time you had with him bring your family peace and comfort at this time. I am blessed to have worked with him.

  7. May these words bring you comfort and hope as they did for our family during our loss. Found at Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, For Jehovah himself has spoken it." Your neighbor and friend, Maddy Hernandez
