  • Wow umm Im not sure where to begin. Ricky is my big cousin, and I just miss him so much. For the past week my mind has been full of thoughts of him. But yet I had not come to shed a tear except the day I lost him, until tonight. I found myself living in denile, not able to except the fact you are really gone. Tonight I finally got that closure to see, that these word that people spoke were true. However, I am still hoping this is a nightmare and I will close my eyes tight, open them, and you will be here in my arms. I try to be strong, but I know it is okay to cry. And I’ll remember this isnt goodbye, but this is see you later. I love you, I wanna say Iam so sorry for not keeping touch with you as much as I should, I bet myself up over it. I try not to, but I guess not I dont try hard enough.. but once again in life I am too late. Everyone please let this show you to give your love ones there flowers while they are yet still living. Ricky Pringle you are always in our hearts for ever more. Keep watching over us… you are.. our guardian angel(:

Kind, considerate, loving and respectful aren’t barely enough words to describe his character. I was proud of him and he will live forever in my heart.

    **r.i.P Rick iMA neva 4 geT u **

  • Im hurting for you its like losing my own. My Baby is so hurt and cant get over that his lil brother is gone and there will never be anyone that cant take the place of him. They have been through Good and Bad they shared secert only they share among eachother

  • I live in the neighborhood where Ricky was killed. i was on my way home from picking my son up from school about an hour after it all happend. our neighborhood for the most part is really quiet and nice. I have been knowing Rickey since he was a little boy. he lived next door to my aunt. we lost touch for so many years until we were grown. my sons father and him were good friends. he was such a nice young man. and granted i am only 5 years older than him, he was always very respectful of me. such a sweetie. it breaks my heart to have to type these words. my prayers go out to his family and to all of our friends who are suffering through this hard time.R.I.P Ricky!

  • My prayers are with his family & true friends. May God keep you close & capture come quickly. This hurts. He & my son have been friends since Markham elementray & I was planning a dinner for their 5th grade graduating class because this year the all would have turned 21. So so sad.

  • damn ricky i cant believe you gone like that we was just hiting eachother on twitter we gone miss you lil bruh LOVE YOU CAT AND RIQUE.

  • Karen and Bruce….. Words can not express how deeply sorry we feel for your loss of your beautiful son Ricky…

  • it’s pointless and wrong. This was my nephew and it hurts to see the violence in our city. I pray that God allows this wrong doing to be rectified asap. R.I.P Ricky.
