A Father And His Son: Our Dino And His Youngest Son, Ricci James

Dear Friends, as we begin to draw our remembrances of Ricci James Martin to a close, at least for the time being, we found a number of powerful pictures of Father and Son when we typed Ricci Martin into the Pinterest site (clicks on title of this post to go there).

Some of these pictures are more known then others, but we have tried to share a variety of poses of our Dino and Ricci during different stages of their relationship as Father and Son.   One thing that is crystal clear by viewing these images is the deep deep love and respect that our Dino and Ricci had for each other.

This quotation from Ricci speaking about his father that we first shared on Thursday of this week really, truly says volumes about Ricci deep love and deep respect for the man he called Father....
"I feel so fortunate being born to him and being his son."  While we may closeout our special tributes in response to Ricci's passing, we are sure that we will find more opportunities to respectfully remember his life and work in the future.
