Wilson family, Our deepest sympathy. We were all family on the Lower Eastside living across the street from each other.. Ricky would always go delivering with me each morning and I would drop him off at school while out, but I knew as I dropped him off at the front door, he’d walk out the back door. He was a great friend to us. Many fond memories as he worked for us. He and his siblings took care of Second Street, always felt safe. That’s what families do for each other. We will miss you.

Do u remember when Ricky had that killer Saint Bernard named Brutus that he would let out of the basement to attack anyone he could in his apartment and guys would b jumping out windows? It finally was killed by the police but Ricky lived to torment people with that dog.
