RIcky was my little brudder. I was 12 when he was born so I got to play house with a real baby. Soon that baby grew into a toddler, and then a little boy, and eventually a teenager who was a foot taller than me. He was the smartest Nelson and I told him that quite a few times including the day before he passed. Ricky wanted to be a veterinarian some day because he love animals. His first favorite color was yellow. He had a true love for life and when something tickled his fancy, boy did you hear that laugh from miles away. I miss him more than anything and I still can't understand how this real. I love you Ricky Ticky.

My baby, Ricky!!! I’ve known Ricky since early 2014. We bonded over men, and our favorite Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj. We talked about everything. We used to be so close. I am heartbroken by this news. We had so many late night chats.. so many jokes. I’m going to miss you and your laugh so much. Sending my love to the Nelsons & Ricky’s other close friends 💙
