Ricky,

You brought joy to everyone you met with an infectious smile that was hard to resist. I will remember your beautiful heart, loving kisses, and special hugs that just made everything okay.

Most of all, I'll never forget bicycling alongside your mom, who never liked leaving you behind even then, carrying you carefully for the ride — the pure excitement on your face as she pedaled along. Even then it was clear you'd be a social butterfly.

May God keep you in His embrace.

Love Always,
Your Cousin Joanna

Ricky was always a loving and happy person. His smile lit up the room and his giggles made you want to laugh with him. Ricky's capacity to love unconditionally was proven each time he wrapped his arms around you for one of his big squeeze hugs. He was an adventurer... unafraid to walk the neighborhood by himself to prove his independence. Ricky, I'll miss you so much! You can hold your Mami's hand now and be at peace my sweet cousin. God Bless you and Keep you always in his Grace.

Love Always,

I am sadden to hear of Ricardo (Ricky’s) passing. I saw him yesterday at his program he was so happy. I will miss him asking me if the Yankees won and getting hugs from him. He was a great young man who will be dearly missed. RIP Ricky.
