I am praying for your family at this time. I have been friends with Ricky since 2nd grade. I could always count on him to be there for me. He was an amazing friend. The past year was hard for me but he gave me a hug whenever I needed one. He was one of my dearest friends. Words can’t explain how lucky I was to be friends with him. This time is hard but it brings everyone together. I’m praying for all of you at this time. I know I’ll honor him as time goes on. My love, thoughts, and prays go out to all of you
I am so very sorry for your loss of Ricky Lee, even though I didn’t get to know him personally. Losing a loved one in death can be one of the hardest things for us to go through. But the Bible does promise a comforting hope of seeing our loved ones again. It’s found at Acts 24:15 which says,”There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Very soon our loved ones will be awakened from death and be resurrected. But as for now he’s safe in God’s memory.
Hi this is one of Ricky’s online friends. I just found out about this and I’m very sorry. I’ve always wondered what happened to Ricky and just found out today. He’s touched me so much. Normally an online gaming friend is just someone you play games with. But ricky was more than that to me. He was probably my closest friend because he’s helped me through so much in my life. I remember we were so close he wanted to hang out with me one time when I went to Arizona for vacation. I’m so sorry to hear this and if you do respond and if it’s not rude I would like to know more about what happened
