The Little Ricky Foundation

We have this page to honor and Memorialize our precious angel Little Ricky 3 09/29/10-09/15/11 and to bring awareness to other families.

In loving memory of our precious Little Ricky (Rick Alan Bodine Jr. ) or as we called him P'Nut, who on September 15, 2011, at 11 months old passed away while in the care of home daycare provider Cassandra Gray. After P'nut's passing I discovered that Ms. Gray is convicted felon for prescription fraud to which we had NO KNOWLEDGE nor were there laws in place to prevent her from caring for children then or now, in addition Ms. Gray has a long history of breaking the law. This foundation has been founded to help raise awareness to other families of the hidden dangers of home daycare providers. We no longer live in the day and age that you can trust someone simply on their word or word of mouth of their character. This foundation is continually researching ways parents can help protect their children by having as many resources and as much information as needed so that they may be well informed when making the choice on where to place their child/children for care.. We want to honor P'nut's memory by helping as many families as possible. Our goals for this foundation is too continually bring awareness to the community and to our Nation. We are working on finding ways to change and pass laws to help keep the children of our nation that are in child care as safe as possible. We are determined to help other families not have to endure the loss our entire family has suffered with the loss of such a precious child. Children are the most precious gift this world has to offer as well as being our future. They should be protected in any and every way possible. Parents need more resources to be able to do their due diligence in choosing the safest and best child care facility for their children and when a child is harmed or dies in a child care provider's care, the laws should be more stringent to protect children and penalties should be stiff for those whom circumvent the law.

Babysitter Jailed After Kids Take Car For Joyride

Back to bringing some awareness. I wonder how many other home daycare providers are on prescription drugs like this one? Prescription drugs played a part in the life of P'nuts babysitter as well. Sad thing is there isn't really a way for a parent to know if the babysitter is using them while doing child care. CLOVER, S.C. (CBSNews) -- South Carolina police say two children went for a joyride and crashed their babysitter's car into a tree, and the woman who was supposed to be watching them is now in jail. The Herald of Rock Hill reports 30-year-old Mary Frances Harmon of Clover faces child neglect and dru...

Kids Left in Hot Vehicle Prompts Charges in Ashburn

Thank You Loudoun County Prosecutor's office for following through with this. A step in the right direction LC. #progress A woman is facing charges after leaving two small children alone inside a hot vehicle, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Kids Left Alone in Hot Vehicle in Ashburn

โ˜น๏ธParents please be careful and NEVER leave your kids alone in the car Two small children were left alone in a hot vehicle Thursday afternoon in Ashburn: Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. Police retrieved them.

[02/03/17]   Ironically today I got on public transportation only to have my grandson's babysitter (at the time of his death) board a few minutes after me with her girlfriend/boyfriend.
It was an incredibly long 15 minutes.
I knew this day would come. NOVA is just too small of a community.
A few years back when I really started working on myself, I forgave a lot of people. Cassandra was on that list. I stopped being so angry at her a for my own benefit, to be a better person.
Today came a trial I was tested to see if that was really true and so it is .
Oddly she did not recognize me and in my personal opinion her eyes were glazed over and she looked like drugs were slowly killing her. I actually felt sorry for the situation. So sorry my Grandson is gone that I literally got weak in the legs and sorry that had the law done what they should have to Cassandra on her felony conviction (again in my opinion ) prior to P'Nut's passing so he would still be here and maybe this babysitter would have learned a lesson and would be clean and not the mess her life is now.

It feels good to know that a few years ago God's loving me removed the anger I had for Cassandra , but not the compassion to fight the cause.

Do I still miss P'Nut with all my heart and soul? Yes!!! 1,000 %

Are we still going to advocate to keep children safe and change daycare laws? Yes 1,000 %.
Am I still going to continue to seek justice for P'Nut's passing through all legal and political Channels? Yes 100% Because others need to be safe and protected from the unawareness and the only way to do that Is to bring the awareness front and center for P'Nut's honor, memory and legacy. ๐Ÿ’™

[12/14/16]   I may not talk about it all the time , as sometimes it can be overwhelming for myself and those around me. Also I will not post another update until well into January after the holidays and I after our family has something tangible to share.

I was given new hope today! There is NO statute of limitation on a class IIII felony. Thank you for that positive note VA

Also, thanks to my phone calls and the work of good detectives in Loudoun County and a judge and a prosecutor willing to do at least something rather than nothing ( though there is so much more that needs to be done) , P'nut's in home unlicensed daycare provider has spent approximately 21 days in jail over two separate occasions for other offenses she has committed.

I will continue to monitor what I can via public access , as I do not want anyone else to fall in harms way in her presence as long as I can help it with the aid of legal officials.

I said this 5 years ago and I will continue to say it until the day I die , I will not stop my quest until some form of justice and the needed answers prevail.

To the person who took the time for me today and who offered to help our family on behalf of P'nut to the best she can and what the law will permit. Thank You, you gave me hope for justice I haven't had since the beginning.

To P'nut~ your whole family loves and misses you and we are so thankful to all the amazing people that offer us support, from old friends to new ones.

This is so sweet and perfect for those of us who are missing loved ones at Christmas (or any other time of the year). This is so sweet and perfect for those of us who are missing loved ones at Christmas (or any other time of the year).
