    Yolanda Holness Clark (MN) extends her deepest condolences to Ricardo’s family! Ricky & I had been in touch since he sent me a beautiful email tribute to my sister Joyce who passed away in 2016 & again in 2020 when my brother Roy Holness died! I was absolutely AMAZED at Ricky’s excellent poetic writing in both English & Spanish! I hope his siblings remember me from Gamboa & have comforting memories of Ricardo to treasure! My memories of Ricky’s GAMBOA DAYS center around OLGC CATHOLIC CHURCH, CYO YOUTH GROUP. Ricky was gentle, quietly friendly. He called me one day a few years ago to CHAT about Gamboa which formed our youth & adulthood! Ricky, your earthly treasures are left behind & heavenly treasure await you eternally!

    Ricardo era un orgullo panameno; un hombre cabal, destacado con un conocimiento mas alla de sus anos. Mis hijos se deleitaban oir sus cuentos de los viejos tiempos, buenos y malos de la Zona del Canal (Santa Cruz...como el decia). Extranare oir tambien sus ilustres cuentos de sus viajes pasados a Latinoamerica, Sudamerica con enfasis al Brasil y por supuesto de nuestro pais natal, Panama Querida (El Valle de Anton).

    Descanse en paz mi hermano amigo,
    Carmen G Wade de Walrond
