    Richard and I were elementary school classmates in Cleveland TX. When I was organizing our 42nd class reunion he was one of the first to reply that he would definitely be there. He moved away and didn’t graduate with us in 1968 but he will always be “one of us”. We will miss you “Rickey”. Rest in Heaven my friend. Praying for peace for Jonnie and your family. 🙏🏻💙🙏🏻
