Personal Notes

I love you Ricci Ann and I am missing you terribly. I am going to miss our phone calls and hearing you laugh. You were my shining star...always there for me. The hole that you have left in my heart will remain until we meet again my beautiful sister. Rest Peacefully....In a field of Daffodils.

Ricci..our family cheer leader. The one who always wanted everyone to be happy. You light has dimmed here on earth, but it shines brightly in heaven. We will never lose sight of all the love she gave to us. We will love her forever.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Randy has told me about growing up with Ricci and her sisters. He told me how he went to school with her and rode back and forth together when they went to Indiana Business College. Randy thought very highly of Ricci and he and I are at a loss of words to say, except your family have been in our prayers. I met her several years ago, not long after Randy and I married. Please know we are praying for you.

Ricci was such a giving and loving person. She could light up a room with her smile and loving personality. She will truly be missed by all who knew her.

You are the lily of the valley
With eyes that glistened like stars in the sky
With a smile that warmed the soul
With a spirit that inspired and encouraged
With the heart and glow of an angel
Your kindness imparted hope and comfort
You humbly carried our burdens
Your understanding eased our pain
Your love transcends time and distance
All who knew you will remember and miss you daily
