My deepest sympathy to Mr. Ricklic's family.

We were so sad to hear Julius passed away on Sunday. He and Shirley were the best next door neighbors anyone could have. I will miss seeing him in his garden calling for us to pick tomatoes for ourselves. We always sat out on our front porch or his to watch the fireworks on July 4th. He and Shirley made our 17 years living here a very pleasant one. We will miss him.

To Shirley,Shelley and family. So very,very sorry to hear of your great loss. He was a super guy. He will be missed. I often think of those I bowled with and against. I was privileged to do both. May God grant you peace and strength.
