Anita and family, it was my honor to have had the pleasure to work with Rickey in construction years ago. I always considered him a friend even though I chose a different path and went to work at the Sheriff’s Office. Rickey will always be my friend because of the good times we had at the job sites years ago. Rest in peace my friend and my God comfort your family during this troubling time. Chuck and Sharon Gray
