    Ricky was a 2nd daddy to me growing up. There was no one I’d turn too other than my dad except for him. When the possibility that my dad wouldnt make it to walk me down the aisle Ricky without hesitation told me I had the next best thing on stand by. He meant the world to my dad and my childhood wouldnt hold the memories it does without having been a part of the Shockley family my whole life. Rest in peace Ricky
