    I am so sorry of the passing of Ricky. I love him like a brother. He and Frank was at our house during the summer when they stay at his Grandmother house. We play together and rode horse, He was a special person.

    I was so sorry to hear about Ricky . As a dear friend growing up Ricky and Frank was the brothers we never had. Dad always loved them and treated them as his. We played in the field in the old tree in the middle of the field where our big heard of cows was . Always getting in trouble. God has another child he took to be with him. We prayed for Ricky but it wasn’t God”s will for him to stay here. We are all going to be at that point of our lives where our days are done here. God”s Grace be with you all at this time. Praying for you all. With Love in my heart, Mary Nickell Layer

    To the family of Richard Hutchison I send my condolences, nothing can prepare us for the loss of a loved one, may you find comfort in family and close friends, fond memories, and god who is the source of all comfort, Isaiah 41:10 says “Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.’”

    So sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with the family. It doesn’t seem like that long ago all us girls were playing softball and listening to Rick yelling at us to hustle up and “knock the crap out of that ball”!! Some of my best childhood memories. RIP Rick!
