Our sweet, dear Uncle Ricky....the patriarch of our family. What will we do without you? So many good memories of you but not one bad one.

About 15 years ago, we became part of Rick's family. His son Travis, married my daughter, Ashley. I saw him as a generous, caring man. A great father and grandfather and a person that will always be a friend of mine. Thank you for the awesome memories and I just wish we could have had more. You will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Dolly and the rest of the Loftis family. Enjoy your new life buddy! Debbie and David Truitt

Dolly and family, i am so sorry to hear about Rickys passing. He was a good friend to me when I lost my son, my brother, and my husband. He listened, comforted me, and helped me with my job as I was a wreck some of that time. I have very fond memories of him and I cherish them. Praying that The Lord will give you comfort, strength, endurance, and assurance of His provision to see him again. Cindy (Boger) Martinez
