Marty and the entire Aloian Family. Saddened to see that Rick passed. Been friends with the Aloian Family for many years from east side. Rick was a wonderful person ( very caring) . I pray you will find peace knowing that the Lords plan for Rick was his kindness. We will all one day be together in a much better world. Until then may the peace of the Lord be with you.

Helen and family, please accept this as an expression of my sympathy in the passing of Ricky. He was the best person; a great son. He'll be missed by a lot of people. I wish I could be home, but it's not possible right now. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
