Ricky Forever in our Hearts

Marine LCpl Richard "Ricky" Slocum
Feb 2, 1985 - October 24, 2004

When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are.

You can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us.

It means... that if we meet again, you will know me.

It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.

-- Frederick Buechner

Thinking of you Kay, Bob, and all of Ricky’s family and friends today. I promise to remember him always.

Ricky will be forever in my heart.
