Rico I remember when your grandmother register you at St. John Catholic School. She always wanted the best for you. I could see the love she had for you. I will always remember what she said to me how much she appreciate me for loving her grandson. My prayers are with your family. Ms. Evelyn loves you always.

To the Family. MANE words can't explain how I feel right now. When I first met Mrs. Ruby it was in my first year of dating Vida'l Ransom. Our first talk and I first laugh I can never forget. She would always ask me when is the wedding date. I could never give her an answer but just laugh and say big granny you have to talk to Vi about it. Lol. From the short time that I've gotten to know you Mrs. Ruby it has been amazing and I have cherished them. It kinda made up the time from my Big granny but I will forever love you and miss you. When that big day come for me and vi you are more than welcome to come and sit and shine you line down upon us. Love you much ❤

I taught Rico when he was in middle school and have remained in contact with him since. I was blessed and honored to be at his wedding. From days taking him home after school sometimes or talking with Mrs. Tate on the phone about my concerns or pride about Rico, I know what she meant to him and what he meant to her. My heart breaks for the family and my condolences go out to everyone who knew and loved Mrs. Tate.
