...Gone to Soon

Ricky Rillera

Kuya Ricky Rillera was a Brother, dear Friend, and Elder to me. He was also one of the most wonderful human beings you could ever be blessed to know. This world is a poorer place for his leaving it – but it is also richer for the marks he made in the lives of all who knew him.

Brother Ricky, we remember you every single day. I am eternally grateful for everything you shared with my students and I – we are all better people for it. We humbly pray that God rests your Soul in Peace.

I also pray that I merit the opportunity to train with you again…some glorious day.

Thank you for the good thoughts. Rick really liked you guys a lot and he was planning on coming to Detroit in the Spring to see you all again. He will certainly be missed.

We spoke over the holidays about his trip in the spring. We were trying to tie in a Chicago trip at the same time.

Regards and peace to you.
