This is a series of a man I got to know a few years ago. He struggles with mental illness and alcoholism. Ricky is also very passionate about antiques and had a nice collection of both junk and valuable items. He has owned several dogs throughout his life and imported them to New York from Germany. Sadly his beloved dog Gretchen passed away and I helped him bury the dog at a pet cemetery.
