I will never forget meeting Ricardo, he was always so polite, calling me Mrs. Gonzalez. Telling me ,Mrs. Gonzalez I'm in love with your daughter. I just laughed it off and said you want some popcorn. Next thing I knew... I was grandma. I have a lot of memories of Ricardo. I love him. He could've been my Son in law. He was in my heart .

My dearest nephew, Ricky! You left us unexpectedly... how do we turn back time and tell you how sweet you are. We drove from New Jersey to Ohio together several times... just you and me. You listened to my corny music and I listened to your music I couldn’t bear to listen for too long. You smiled when we had nothing to say..., this is the same smile I will always remember you by. I love you papo... so sorry if I never told you. Hope grandpa receives you with open arms! ❤️ Tia Vero

The last time I saw Ricky was January 26th at my brothers birthday party. I didn’t speak too much to him, only a little bit because it had been so long since the last time I had seen him I was being shy lol, and I really do regret that!!! I have so many good memories of him and him being so funny and always laughing 🧡 my favorite memory though was the day Gabe was born visiting in the hospital and feeling the happiness in the room, he is Rickys twin and I hope he always remembers his fathers love 👼🏻🙏🏽💙

I remember the day my sisters and I first met you. We lived off of henritze and you took your moms Toyota to come see Kayla although you didn’t have a license, and I remember Kayla introducing you and being so happy because she had been crushing on you for the longest. I always remembered hearing her say, Ricky this Ricky that lol. You were so good to her.... I remember you guys had names for each other... Mosa, and Moso.... There honestly are too many memories too go on and say, so much I could go on forever. But I remember the time we all went running in the rain, me, Jalissa, Kayla, you and Jeremiah....we didn’t care who looked, and we just didn’t care who thought we were crazy. I remember the times Kayla and I were pregnant at the same time. It was always myself, Jon, Kayla and you and we would have bonfires in Kaylas back yard. I’ll never forget how great of a father you were to Gabriel.....& how much you loved both Kayla & Gabe... you were such a great person....

My condolences to the family of Ricky.... & to Kayla & Gabriel.

He will always be with you all in spirit. May he Rest In Peace.
