Someone once said..."when you're gone from this life, how will YOU be remembered?"

I think every single person would agree that, Ricky Jared Kay, was "one of the most memorable humans they've ever met."
If you were blessed to know him, then you definitely had a "true friend" for life. 'Lil Ricky or 'Lil Rick (as most of us called him) could light up a room with his precious smile and sweet laugh, for days. Most of us can still hear that contagious laugh, even now. Rick was ALWAYS so happy, and an absolute delight to be around. He had a way of just making you feel like you were the most important person in the world to him. He just had a way of making everyone's day, and he never minded always letting you know how much he loved you! He loved his babies - Kayleigh and Eli, and his family more than anything! He was so proud of his babies, and he would often say, "I've got the best kids."
He had a heart of gold, and he was just a true, caring guy from the heart. If he thought you needed ANYTHING, and he knew about it, he'd be there in a second to provide it. He'd give you the actual shirt off his back, or bring you gas for your generator during a hurricane...That's just the "simple things" he did. He often gave food out of his garden, in which he loved being in, and taking care of. And most know he was pretty good at that gardening too, lol! He just had a great love to help anybody, and he took pride in helping them too!
Some of you probably spent most of your time with him on the good 'ol Sabine River bottom fishin' - Heck, he probably pulled most of you out before, because he was just always there to help whenever you called. You may have found him running hounds on his adventurous deer hunts too, unless you were just one of the lucky ones, and you got to go get in on those memories with him. Some would even say, "he could entertain you on that 'ol front porch when he wasn't "piddlen"." Good 'ol Rick was just one of the sweetest souls to walk on this Earth. And how will HE be remembered?...

"He was a good somebody that will be missed."

"I'll miss him something fierce."

"He was one of "the good ones"... Just a "back home" kinda guy."

"You made the world a better place."

"From day one he treated me like a friend - and that's hard to come by."

"Heaven gained a contagious smile."

"It's true when they say God takes the best ones... You were definitely one of the best ones."

"God "allowed" us this great privilege just to know him. "

"He was the true meaning of a lifelong friend."

"Waking up that morning definitely broke my heart."

"Save some fish for the rest of us on the other side of those Pearly Gates."

"His story-telling was all part of his charm. I swear he could have sold swamp land in Antarctica."

"To know him was to love him."...
And that's just a few thoughts of some remembering him even now. πŸ’” πŸ’™

I think if he could tell us all just one more thing today... I think he'd say, "keep your hearts soft and open, so you can feel when others need you, even if they can't say it sometimes 😭...Do your best to be a good person, so that others can look up to you and smile πŸ’™. If you have babies, hug them and tell them each and everyday how much you love them. Stay humble to the Lord, and keep telling the ones you love, just how much you love them everyday. - Don't hold a grudge or a chip, and here is why: "bitterness keeps you from flyin' ", so always stay humble and kind...Don't take for granted the love this life gives you, and when you get where you're goin' - don't forget - turn back around...and help the next one in line...
~ "ALWAYS stay humble and kind."

He was preceded in death by his father, Ricky Joe Kay and grandparents, Bruce and Denise Vicars and Bennie Payne.
Those left to cherish his memory are his children, Eli Kay and Kayleigh Kay both of Burkeville, TX;
mother and stepfather, Angie and Marc Myers;
sisters, Jessica Kay and Lacy Fox and husband John all of Burr Ferry;
stepbrothers, Tristan and Brandon Myers of Dequincy
