Tomorrow we celebrate my younger brother Ricky's retirement. Mostly family and a few of his friends are coming over to eat BBQ and wish him well. He has worked two full time jobs for as long as I can remember. He is retiring from our local school as custodian. He will continue to work with his son in their plumbing business.
He is a good, honest, family man. He loves a good laugh and a good meal. He is one of the kindest people I have ever known. He lives next door and each time I watch him walk up the hill to our house I think it is my dad. Ricky looks just like our dad. He and his wife Deb have raised three awesome kids. His grandkids adore him.
I would call him one of the most successful people I know. Not a lot of money, but all the right stuff... honesty, integrity, kindness and love.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
