  4. I grew up three doors down from the Solomon’s. Ricky and I were best friends and inseparable growing up. Mary and my mother were good friends too. Mary and Budge were super nice people. So sorry to hear of her passing today. My sincere condolences to Ricky, Tracy and their families.

  5. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. My heart goes out to the family. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God’s Word refers to death as an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26). It is comforting to know that very soon our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah, will remove death once and for all and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again here on the earth.
