Mrs. Ricks was telling me who was in the pictures on the table. She is the only one still living from those family photos. There is a photo of her parents, sisters and brothers. Many of the photos are over 100 years old. The photos include her grandparents and great grandparents. She knows the value of family photos and the history the photos hold.
Mrs. Ricks is 98 1/2 years young. She will become a centenarian on July 17th, 2012. She still rides MARTA to her doctor appointments and they find it hard to believe that she comes alone. She says it is hard for her not to be independent. She cooks for herself and is looking forward to planting her own garden on 'Good Friday.'
