Dear Francesca,
My deepest condolences. I heard the news around that time, my mom had told me about it. From what I remember of Ricky, he was a kind and thoughtful man and I'll always remember him fondly, as well as the rest of my family.
Last night I showed my mom this website with your photo on it and she was so happy to see you and to hear you're are doing well.
One day, Jairo had dropped by on a delevery run to say hello and only Adam was home. He gave him a photo of his graduation for my mom. Hehehehe, I would see that photo of him from time to time but, never questioned my folks who it was thinking it was another family memeber from South America. Then last night my mom pulled the photo from underneath the glass top of her dresser and said that was Adam. HE'S A MAN!!! Ooohhh how time flys.
Anyway, it's nice to hear from you again and my mom will be very happy hear your voice again. Take care and please tell Adam we say hello.
Ciao for now,
Sinerely,
Pablo Ramos

I was unaware that she was looking for you until today when we spoke of you and Little Adam and I figured you somehow would keep up with the times via the internet. Wow!!! very nice dedication site. Please E-mail when you have a moment and I'll give you all her information.
Sincerely,

Hello
I've put together a list of places where
Mr. Robinson lived at throughout his life
and thought that his fans, friends and family might be interested in it. It is by
no means complete, and if anyone has something new to add, please do so.
I hope everyone enjoys it.
Thank you
Bob S.
