My deepest sympathies and prayers to Ricardo's family. I had know him from the old neighborhood. and appreciated that he came to my mom's funeral visitation. I did offer Mass for Ricardo when I learned he would soon be called to the Lord.
Eternal rest grant unto Ricardo, Oh Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
St. Michael, watch over and protect all our police officers.

Many prayers for the Herrera family. Great memories of teasing Ricky when we were growing up on central park in chicago. Sorry i will not be able to attend the funeral mass, but have already offered three masses for Ricardo and his family.
