  1. I remember Ricky from when I sometimes would sub in his class at Dacula High..I cannot believe that searching someone else I just came upon this picture.. and I am sad and sorry that his light has dimmed…I loved that smile of his so much..and would get such joy when I would roll him by the band room and if the drumline class was practicing then Ricky would just go crazy with happy joy..and that would just lift me to see him so happy.Please know I am sorry for the loss of sweet Ricky.

  2. Hazel and family, I am so sorry to hear about Ricky. I was one of his papas in middle school. He was such a joy each and every day. He sure did bring lots of joy to our class.
    Thoughts and prayers to you all. Mrs. Karen Knout
