So sad to hear this. Ricky was the first friend I ever had. He lived around the corner from me and we I would say we starting playing together when I was around four years old. Lot's of great memories with those weekend rides with his father Joe (Pony) that would take us all over New England. Summer days at Hampton Beach, playing games with the other kids in the neighborhood. All kinds of fun. And of course Michael and his friends were often in the mix. So many stories. Lost touch some years ago. I wish I had tried to stay in touch. Sorry to see you pass my old friend. Peace and comfort to you Michael and family in the days ahead. RIP Ricky (Webber)
