    It is with a very heavy heart that my husband and I are just now learning of this news. We had been friends with Ricky and David since the early 1980s, but had drifted apart in 1990 when Russ and I moved to California. However we still stayed in contact with David at birthdays and holidays. And David continued to bless me with his poetry as it evolved. My prayers are with him and family members at this difficult time! Blessings!
