I want to send my prayers and condolences to the families in this time of great sorrow. Rickey will be missed for sure. He was one to lighten up the party when we were growing up with some of his tricks he played, but then Dennis seemed to be right along beside him so I really am not sure who started it.
Love Always,
Nancy Crosby Hoskinds, Cousin

We want to send our Prayers and Deepest Sympathies for all of the Rutherford families.

I personally have a lot of fond memories of Rickey growing up and spending time together riding horses and just plain horsing around with him and his family. I will always remember his laugh and mischievous nature, I think that is why we got along so well. May God be with each of you in this time of sorrow.
