This post is dedicated to Ricardo Harrid. Aka Rico Suavee. I found out today that he passed away, which also happens to be day one of this blog. He had sickle cell disease, and was often in an out of the hospital. I know he’s in a better place now. No longer in any pain. Rico knew how to light up a room with his jokes and presence. He knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face. He was a fighter. One of the strongest people I’ve ever known. He fought a good fight. And in my eyes, you won your battle baby boy. Now you’ve earned your wings. Fly high…say hello to all those we’ve lost, like your best friend Veron Hudson (may he also R.I.P). You will ALWAYS be missed, every second of every day. But you are in a better place. May you rest in Paradise, and rest in peace. I love you Suaveee. Sunrise 03/06/1994, Sunset 01/16/2017.
