    As a teenager Ricky was a heart throb. Loved watching him play drums while his band down in his basement. Even though I was a few years younger, he still always treated me nice. Rest easy Ricky Benson.

    Rick was a wonderful, generous man. I’ll miss him. And now I also miss his sister, Darla, who passed away on the 14th of this month. Chris, there are no lies here. It is true and I’m sorry your dad is gone.
