Ritchie was my buddy. He was at Mississippi State with me and used to be my driving partner coming and going. He was at State when he got into that car accident and I felt soo bad for him being there. It took me a long time to get over his passing and I still think about him. He is greatly missed by me. Love ya, Buddy.

I can remember Ritchie like was yesterday. He was someone that I knew ever since elementary when we were at Woodville Heights. I remember his fondness for art as he was a really good artist as well as an accomplished basketball player when he was in junior high at Siwell. I never saw much of him in high school and wish that I could say that it's a shame what happened to such a talented person.
