Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I feel very blessed to have had Ricky in my life. He was very smart, creative, honest and helpful. I have so many fond memories of us as kids. He would stay at our place when he would come in from B.C. I remember him setting up all of his G.I. Joe and Star Trek toys everywhere in the living room of our small home. I wasn’t interested in any of that, but I would find a spot somewhere in-between all of the chaos of this set up, to look through my Teen Beat magazines and put on my press on nails. It was then that we would talk about all kinds of stuff. He introduced me to some really cool Sci-fi movies, which he absolutely loved. Ricky always said that I looked like Barbara Streisand and he would often send me pictures of her in the mail. One Christmas my grandmother took me to Victoria B.C. to visit my auntie and Ricky was also coming for the visit. We had so much fun. We had decorated my grandma with tinsel and Christmas ornaments when she had fallen asleep in the chair sitting up. We laughed so hard about that. Ricky was honest to a fault. My grandma would do this thing to my hair in the evening, where she twisted pieces of my hair and then pinned them with Bobbie pins. In the morning it looked so curly. I loved it, but Ricky kept telling me to stop getting my hair done like that because I looked like a hippy! My only regret is that we would of kept in touch as adults and that I would have been given the opportunity to see him when a family member brought him into Winnipeg for a visit. Ricky, Dennis and myself were the 3 amigos. Both of these boys have passed on. “hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo” until we meet again. 🖖 With all my love, your cousin, Debbie - Posted by: Debbie Dann (Cousin ) on: Oct 04, 2021
