Prayers are lifted for all of the Waters family during this time of sorrow. I had the privilege of growing up with both Anthony and Ricky as young boys, and spent much of my early life with them. Johnny & Ruby were like my own parents during those years. Ricky was always a dear friend and will be missed by all who knew him.....What a reunion there is in Heaven now.....

I'm so sorry to hear about Ricky. We have been friends for years but we drifted apart. I know nothing is forever but this is one guy that should still be with us. My prayers go out to you.
