Hey Rick... My goodness where do I start? I've attempted to write something for you since your funeral, for the life of me, I can't seem to find the words. You always had something great to say. I absolutely love that about you! There's so much I wanna say to you. Thank you so much Rick. Thank you for our beautiful little girl we made together. I can remember being pregnant with her, and you writing to me saying you prayed that I had a piece of you and, well... Lol,your prayers came true!! She has your eyes and your heart and it kills me a little more every single time she breaks down crying, missing you. I found the talking unicorn you had given her with your voice on it, saying you love her, she's your sweetheart, and you want her to get in bed,say her prayers, and how much you love her! Im so very grateful she has that, & i pray she always does so she doesn't forget your voice. She loves her daddy so so much, & she still isn't ok, But you probably know that. I can feel you around often. Every time Lydia sees a butterfly she says there's my daddy, visiting me from heaven! She sleeps in your shirts all the time. I finally got her to talk about you again, For a long time she couldn't talk about you. But I know she will heal eventually, with time. You helped me and loved me through the toughest times of my life, I never thanked you. I'm sorry. Thank you so much, Rick, I wish I hadn't pushed you away, you had given up, and moved on, yet i wasn't angry. We remained friends, so i know it just wasn't in the cards for us. No matter what tho, you always treated me with respect and always let me know you cared, and you really stepped up as a daddy, I can't express how much that means to me!!! You checked out too soon. Honestly, I thought you'd outlive us all. I mean, to me your a superhero. You could've done anything you wanted and most of the time it'd all work out for you. You inspire me still to this day Rick. Im gonna love you forever and ever, I will never forget you, our time we shared, the good, the bad, in-between, the ups & downs & the on again, off agains. You will forever be in my heart. I think of all the times you wooped me at Scrabble & smile! OMG! & LONG ISLAND ICE TEAS! Oh, my my my, we wouldn't have Lydia if not for those long island ice teas, good times, great memories! Good friends! Talking for hours under the tree in front of our apartment at 10500... SMH. LMAO I can't get all my thoughts & memories to come out, i guess maybe it still hurts too much, but stay close with our little girl, please, & let her feel your presence always, ok! Im so grateful, and I'm proud I had the opportunity to get to know you. I'll never forget the night we met what you said, Lol you were so silly, & so crazy! You new how to put people at ease, you were always a blast to be around! You were a friend to just about any & everyone you met. You've definitely made your mark on this world, and I always looked up to you too. I wish I had said this stuff to you while i had the chance. you will definitely always be missed in my home. Every min of every day. R.I.P. my friend, I love you to the moon and back!
Love you always,
Jody

Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share. You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to. He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.

So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared, The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared. Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,

That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here, And fills you with the feeling that he is always near. For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart And he will live forever locked safely within your heart.

Love you always Rickey James

I thank god everyday that he placed Ricky in my life, on my path, and in my heart. He was a man so full of joy and love and laughter. He was always there with encouraging words, and a reassuring embrace. He loved to help others. To do good for someone else, made him feel good in his heart. He was a man of God and he loved unconditionally. Our love grew over the years and turned into the greatest love I have ever felt. My heart truly aches and I will miss him forever.
I love you Ricky, I always have, and I always will.

BROKEN CHAIN
We little knew that morning
God was to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again. ~ Much Love to you brother, Rest In Peace, love Woman

“CHANGE OF ADDRESS MY MOVING IN NOTICE”
I wanted to let you know that I’ve moved. I received a call from God the chief architect who informed me that my new home is ready and that I am to move in immediately.
You all know that I’ve been sending up my timber, packing up getting ready to go, but there were some minor finishing touches in some of the timbre that only the Chief Carpenter, Jesus Christ could do, some were a little too broad, thick or not long enough. 
Well my new home is now finished and it’s a beautiful sight to behold, it is located in an exclusive estate area, and has beautiful Pearly Gates, just off a serene celestial shore.
Of course, the streets are paved with gold and everyday is Sunday I’m told. I’ve lived in many places, before my new home was prepared, and none of them compare.
There is peace, joy, and happiness here, with no more pain or fear. No strife or discontent to contend with, there is only sweet serenity everywhere.
I can go on and on about my new home, but I have to be fitted for my new robe and golden slippers.
Oh, if you could hear the singing, you would know that I am right at home.
I see some of my loved ones, who have gone before, so let me give you my new address, so you will be able to find me here once you arrive.
Mr. Rickey James Craver
111 Pearly Gates Place
God-In Heaven 00000
