Angel and Family, what can I say, we go back to High School, lived down the street in Fayetteville and ended up living across the street from each other in Woodbridge. I remember when you and Ricky met. The word says to give Honor to whom Honor is due, we lift Ricky up, for all his accomplishments but even the more for all the lives he blessed and touched along the way. I am praying that the Lord sends his Angels to Comfort
and Strengthen you all during this difficult time. Heaven has gained another Angel. Rest In Peace Ricky.

My heart goes out to Mother Wilson, Angel Lang, and the rest of Bro. Rickey's family. Bro. Rickey was always a beacon of light and brought a smile to my face when I spoke with him. He encouraged me to join the Bethel Praise Team with him and nominated me to become a Trustee with Bethel A.M.E. I was hoping to get more time to learn from him, but I will forever have him in my heart, and smile to know that he's receiving the reward for all of his dedicated works. Until we see each other again, Rest In Peace Bro Rickey

Angel, I am sorry to hear about your husband's passing. I have prayed for you very often these weeks because I know this pain. It is amazing to me that throughout all of the time of my husband's passing and even today, I can see the Lord's work and feel His love. You have probably experienced the same grace. I pray that He gives you all the grace you need to endure this time in your life. Always willing to listen if you find yourself wondering ways to make it one day at a time. God bless you and your daughter, Lexus. Sincerely, Karen Huff

To the Lang family,

My sincerest deepest condolences & prayers go out to you. Your family holds a special place in my heart. I met Rickey through Angel, I saw in Rickey everything a loving husband, father, friend & provider should be. Although I met Rickey after his service in the military there is not a doubt in my mind he gave his all as he did everyday to his family & friends through his love & kindness. Rickey, You will be missed my friend. Angel & Lexus I know your faith with carry you through this ordeal but please know I will be there if you need me.
