Dear Donna, James, Abby, Holly, & Cory:
Snuff and I have know each other for about 65 years. In the beginning, we had some rough times as kids often do. But after we got to really know and respect each other, we became best friends ever. We did everything together: sailboat racing, working for the Buckameyer's (Mt.Lake Beach and Bar), sneaking into the Island Drag Races, 1976 National celebration, Going to the Playboy Club, skiing at Great Gorge, bar hopping, motorcycle riding, sailing Lake Erie and Atlantic Ocean, judging Bark Shanty Cook Off. And as you know, we both married the Haynes Sisters. Then you and Snuff gave me the greatest gift ever: You asked me to be your Son's Godfather (which I was not very good at; sorry). We did so much together that he became so much more then just my best friend, he is the Brother I never had. If I am blessed enough to see Snuff again in Heaven, I know we'll raise hell again as we did on Earth. It breaks my heart not to be able to attend the Funeral of my Dear Friend. But please know, I will be shedding tears for Snuff and his beautiful family just as I am now while writing this to you. With all our Love, Charles and Marilene Ricards
