    I met Ricardo after he relocated to Searcy in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. We were casual friends but had many short and always interesting visits at the Searcy library or when I would see him sitting on the porch at the Mayfair on my way through downtown. I’ didn’t know him well but I’m glad I met him and will miss seeing him.
    Peace to his family… +
