  14. Shattered to hear the news only recently. Had the privilege of teaching Ricky in grade four and even 14 years later, it may surprise some to hear that he’d still make my top five of kids I got to work with over the years. :)

    Strength and love to everyone who knew him in the years he was around. I only knew him properly for five or six but they were important years.

    Rest easy, mate.
