I’m sure by now you’ve heard the awful news about Ricky’s car accident yesterday on his way to work. He’s been fighting for his life ever since but unfortunately things took a turn for the worse overnight and we do not believe he will survive this event. You can only imagine what the family is going through right now.
Trust Me , they are going to need all of our help going forward. I’m setting up this page so that they do not lose their home as well as their father & husband. I’m not sure how much they will need but we can meet this goal and more to put them in a good position without any more suffering. They are going to need money for medical expenses, funeral arrangements & to replace his income paying the mortgage until they can figure out what they’re going to do.
We need to step up as a community right now & Help this family as if it’s our own. I know that removing Rickys income from the family would be devastating to their budget & result in a much more difficult experience than necessary.
My Friends it will be greatly appreciated if you can find it in your heart to dig deep and give something to this family in their time of need. Let’s show the world what a great community we live in. We always take care of our own in Woonsocket.
It is with great sadness and tears in my eyes that I write these words. Ricky from the first time we met we just clicked and have been great friends for decades. You were always my sidekick when we went out locally , to concerts, road trips, snowboarding , the beach & so on. I’ve shared
so many wonderful experiences with your beautiful family. I cannot believe this is happening. I’m going to miss you more than I can express right now. You will be greatly missed by many. I want you to know you were a great father & husband, Be Proud!!!
Just know I will be there for Jill & the Kids. Goodbye Dear Friend
