I am so sorry for the loss of our loved one! Putt will be truly missed. I always remember the times we would go to Houston to MAMA'S and PAPA'S house and that green Super Bee was one of my favorite cars. He always kept it clean and boy it was fast!!! He told me a lot of stories about when he was growing up. I always admired him and man he loved to play dominoes I watched him play up there in sevenoaks at Halls Pool Hall in 7Oaks. I remember saying when I was a kid when I grow up I am going to get me a fast car just like Putt had. RIP Ricky
