In Memory of Rickey J. Nelson

Rickey J. Nelson was a 16 year-old boy from Gary, IN.  He was shot and killed on Sunday, August 5th, only two months after his 16th birthday.  He was funny, clever and had a good spirit.  He was his mom's right hand man, her 'Rickey-Mickey'.  He was a role-model to his brothers and a shining light to all who knew him.   

Homegoing services are being planned and details will be shared once plans are finalized. 

Thank you to everyone who has surrounded and continue to surround us with love and support.
