    Sandy, Brandon & Eric. So sorry to hear about Ric.. He was a real Jewel of a person. God only lent him to us. . He has a special place in heaven for him.. I so much enjoyed his friendship at work and on all those sailing adventures we had... I could write a book about all the fun we had. He's in a better place now and he is not suffering.

    I have a wonderful memory of Ricky Courts. When I was a junior at SPHS I had extensive spinal fusion. My first outing after five months was to a basketball game. When I entered the gym with cane in hand, Ricky stood up from the bleachers to give me his seat. That one small gesture of be a gentleman, has stayed with me all these years. Kind thoughts to the family and my condolences.
