    My condolences to the Follis family at this time of loss. I’ll always remember Ricky – I worked with Donna for many years and when I got married at Paramount Christian Church in 2001, she and Ricky came to the wedding. Just as the pastor pronounced us husband and wife, I heard “That a boy Steve!”. It was Ricky and everyone chuckled. It’s a bittersweet memory now as I lost my Rebecca in 2012. May God give you comfort during this time.

    Katie, I am so sorry for your loss. I have the memories of when we were so much younger and I use to go to your house and your father would always give me a hard time always in fun!! I am sending prayers for you and your family at this time.

    Condolences to all the Follis family at this sad time. You probably won’t recognize my name, but I was the CPS caseworker for Joshua Follis. After placing Josh in your home, I got to know Ricky and Donna during my monthly visits to Josh. I came to really respect both of them. They were really special people. I especially remember your mom’s sense of fun and her Halloween haunted house. I am so sorry for your loss. God bless you.
