    To RJ’s family… thoughts and prayers are with each of you. I know you are going to miss him. Richie and Rickey Joe had some great times here on earth and I know they are having a wonderful time in heaven – probably catching a bunch of fish! Rick always called me “Mrs. Elizabeth” and I smile when I think about that. Rest in love RJ!
