He touched my life many years ago when we played in the band, Joyful Noise, together. I will never forget his sweet spirit and how he called me, “sister.” Love to all the family, and a special word to all the members of Joyful Noise. Love you all.

I wish you all much comfort in the coming days. Ricky was such a good person. My husband was only 54 when he passed away. Losing a loved one that you spend your life with is very hard. I pray God sustains you through the coming days, months and years. My prayers are with you all
