Sometimes this part of your job stinks, when it is family. Big Rick was a great guy with a big heart. He was funny. A great conversationalist and awesome family man. He made me laugh. Ricky and Angel are my children too. They took good care of Big Rick when he lived with them. I would take him goodies. I know they treated him good because they spoil and take care of me. Since Nikki and Ricky have been brother and sister since 4th grade. This year been hard losing Nikki, Casper, now Dad Rick.
But they are all in Heaven together. No stress, drama. Worries,
or cares. And all the toilet paper they need. Those jokers. We love them and miss them all so much. We will see you soon. Mama Bear Stefi Buddy Bear Gene Brother Bear Ricky Angel Bear xoxoxo
