What the heart once known shall never forget!
This is my son Richard known to all as Rickey
My son decided to be a donor when registering for his licenses.
We lost our son in 2015. Trying to process it all & being overwhelmed knowing who Rickey is we decided to honor his wishes. Because giving back was Rickey. Everyone who knew him always said his smile was infectious & he had a heart of gold!
He would gather donation & provide to families at the Plastic Surgery Unit at CHOP Hospital where he was a patient for over 20 years. He was always helping someone in need.
Family & Friends would say it was impossible not to love this kid, or Rickey was truly the definition of a Free Spirit! His little sister states My big Brother Rickey always looked after me he’s still my hero.
Through our grief. We wanted to bring something positive out of our loss.
So Rickey's voice & legacy will continue on. We have done several projects & continue to do walkathons & The Donor Dash! Giving Back in his Memory.
His High School since has decided to name the ROTC Equipment Room after him!Any chance we have to bring awareness for Tissue/Organ Donation, we're there. This has helped our family towards the healing process.
It's a long road ahead. But I couldn't be more prouder of My Son Rickey.
We are here today to help Celebrate & Honor not only his life but all the Donors & cheer on the recipients. My Son Richard was an amazing young man he is loved & missed by so many. He will forever be with us in our hearts. What the heart once known shall never forget!
WE LOVE YOU BUDDY YOUR WITH ME ALWAYS KIDDO LOVE MOMMA, SISSY EMME & STEPDAD JOHN XOXOXOXO
