Celebrating the life of RICKY C. RHODES
Thank you for signing RICKY C. RHODES's Guestbook
I will always remember Ricky coming down the river rooster tail behind that boat ,hair blowing in the wind, shades on, and that smile. We would circle then stop, I would set there in the sun and listen to Ricky never knowing just how good and short life is. What a kind, good hearted soul Ricky was and no matter how bad your day was he could always make it better. I know deep in my heart theres a river with an endless summer ,two rooster tails now where brothers can run wild and free as their hearts desire...love you guys

The last time I saw Ricky and asked how he was doing, his comment was pretty good for a "Jack Leg" carpenter. When I left I thought, Ricky you are a "Master Carpenter" and planned to tell him just that the next time I saw him. Next time never happened, but we will not forget him. Ricky was one of the main men building our house. Joe and Gloria Landino
