MANDY WROTE THIS ON HER BLOG / MANDY WROTE 6-18-2007 (FRIEND) It will be a year next month since the loss of Ricky happened. It has been a life changing experience for all of us. It had made me realize that anything could happen to any one of us and that you should not take your friends for granted. You should cherish them and the life that you live and thank God every day for what you have. There's so much that I would have done differently if I knew what was to happen that tragic day. And there's so much that I wish I would have said to him before his life was taken. I wish I could of told him how much he meant to me and how much he was loved. Ricky was the best friend anyone could ever of hoped for. He has helped me in ways that no one else could have and I just wish that I could of done the same for him. I wish there was something I could of done to help prevent what happened. Still to this day I do not understand what happened and why. I don't understand how someone can be so evil to take the life of someone as good as Ricky. I used to always believe in the saying "everything happens for a reason" untill what happened...because I just don't see how there could be such a reason in why Ricky's life had to be taken. He was such a good, loving person. And yes he did have some problems but we all have our problems. It's just so painful knowing that he deserved so much better even if he didn't think he did. I feel like ever since Ricky's been gone everything has gone downhill with friends getting in constant trouble and loosing contact with eachother. Every now and then I have a dream about Ricky where I'm looking for him and can't find him anywhere, and then there's this one dream where he comes back like he was never was gone and faked the whole thing. They always seem so real, so I always try to look at it as Ricky showing me that he is still here with us but up above. I never dreamed or imagined of loosing someone so close and I never imagined it would be so painful. But I have learned in the past year that you just have to keep your head high and think of the fun good times you had with him. It always brings a smile to my face. I think the friends who know Ricky should be praying for his family beacuse just think of how painful it was and still is to loose Ricky for us... you can only imagine how painful it would feel like to loose a brother, or a son, or a nephew even. Just thinking about it brings a tear to my eye. Ricky was and still is loved and missed by so many. He will never be forgotten. R.I.P

Late at night I lie awake as the hours slowly pass by. I think of things that used to be and it makes me start to cry. Seasons changed and I've changed, but one thing stays the same.Birthday wishes fill my heart, but the emptiness remains.I try to look so happy,like there's nothing wrong. But my insides are about to fall apart as my outside appears so strong.I move about the house putting on a fake smile.Trying to fool everyone around, knowing better all the while.Although 1-1/2 years have passed, and some of things have been packed away. I still remember how it was, like it was yesterday. If time is said to heal the pain, then why is it still here? Why is the smile that you used to bring, replaced with a tear?You are still a part of my life, even though you've passed on. I still find myself looking for you then remembering that you're gone.I have to smile when I think of the times with you. Now that your gone, it doesn't seem like it used to.More and more each day I realize that those days are gone. Especially today as birthday is here, this rose I send to you with love and a tear. I want to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and hope that you can hear.No matter how far you may be, inside my heart you will "always be.I LOVE YOU.....AND MISS YOU MORE AND MORE EVERY DAY- I LOVE YOU, MOM - HAPPY BIRTHDAY...MOM Added: 1/30/2008
Sunny days seem to hurt the most. I wear the pain like a heavy coat. I feel you everywhere I go. I see your smile, I see your face, I hear you laughin' in the rain. I still can't believe you're gone. It ain't fair: you died too young, Like the story that had just begun, But death tore the pages all away. God knows how I miss you, All the hell that I've been through, Just knowin' no-one could take your place. An' sometimes I wonder, Who'd you be today? Would you see the world? Would you chase your dreams? Settle down with a family, I wonder what would you name your babies? Some days the sky's so blue, I feel like I can talk to you, An' I know it might sound crazy. It ain't fair: you died too young, Like the story that had just begun, But death tore the pages all away. God knows how I miss you, All the hell that I've been through, Just knowin' no-one could take your place. An' sometimes I wonder, Who you'd be today? HAPPY BIRTHDAY...I LOVE YOU RICKY - I MISS YOU...MOM Added: 1/30/2008
There's a special angel in Heaven That is a part of me. It is not where I wanted him, But where God wanted him to be. He was here just a moment, Like a night time shooting star. And though he is in Heaven He isn't very far. He touched the hearts of many, Like only an angel can do. I would've held him every minute, If the end I only knew. So I send this special message To Heaven up above. Please take care of my angel...AND SEND HIM ALLMY LOVE...HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY...I LOVE YOU - I MISS YOU...MOM Added: 1/30/2008

Happy Birthday To You! / Kim Keltner (Best Friend )
Happy Birthday Ricky!
A lot of time has passed since I last saw you, It's still hard to believe you're gone. I miss my best friend so much....we had so much fun together. I will never forget you, I never could. You gave me so much happiness when you were here. No one understood our relationship...but we did. We knew we were best friends and we told each other everything. I miss that....I miss telling you everything and us sitting and crying together. I remember the first time we met at Hot Topic, and then you started working on my line, we had so much fun. I always tried getting you to the the Stuart Dance - lol. You always made me laugh, on breaks you would make me laugh so hard I started hurting, but it was so fun. You were one of the funniest people to be around. And I still laugh thinking back on our memories together.....and our trip to Florida...we played "our game" the whole way there. You beat me of course, but thats because you cheated...lol. I haven't played that game with anyone else - it wouldn't be the same. You made an impact on my life from day one. And I could always come to you for advice no matter what it was about. You were a true friend, and I love you for that. The hardest thing I have had to do was drive to Dyersburg to bury my best friend. It was a hard trip to make but I had to be there to see you one last time. I know our friendship was special to you too. But I will see you again some day "My Redneck thug". Just always remember you were and always will be in my heart and loved so very much!

"THE CALL" WRITTEN BY YOUR SISTER DAYE / POEM WRITTEN BY DAYE ADDED BY MOM
THE CALL I'LL NEVER FORGET THAT NIGHT, THE CALL CAME @ 11:27 I WAS TOLD OF THE TRAGIC NEWS, THAT MY BROTHER HAD GONE TO HEAVEN. HIS LIFE WAS SUDDENLY TAKEN FROM HIM, IN A QUICK BLINK OF AN EYE. HE DIDN'T EVEN HAVE TIME, TO TELL US ALL GOODBYE. MY MIND WONDERS AND CHASES, MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT GOOD. HOW COULD THIS HAVE HAPPENED? WAS HE JUST MISUNDERSTOOD? NOW THE SORROW MY FAMILY FACES, THE HURT,THE SADNESS,THE PAIN. WHAT DID THEY ACCOMPLISH? WHAT DID THEY GAIN? MY FAMILY HAS TO SUFFER, THE LOSS OF ONE OF THEIR OWN. HE WAS JUST A CHILD, NOT FULLY DEVELOPED NOR GROWN. THEY HAVE TAKEN FROM US:HIS LIFE, BUT, HIS MEMORY THEY WON'T GET. FOR HE IS FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS, WE WILL NEVER FORGET. RICKY DEWAYNE McCORKLE, MY LITTLE BRO. WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU, AND WE WILL NEVER LET GO. LOVE YOU BRO. YOUR SISTER/DAISEY WRITTEN 5 /22 /2007 Close

IN OUR HEARTS We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name. Now all we have are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we'll never part. God has you in his keepsake, we have you in our hearts.

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend; Someone who changes your life just by being part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop; Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is Forever Friendship. Close
Ricky you may be gone from this Earth but you are by far not forgotten. We will work to keep your memory alive forever. You are now one of God's Angels so soar high above the clouds and visit your family once in a while. Let them know that you are doing ok and tell them just how beautiful Heaven is. They miss you so much. I ask that you look up my Angels Jessica and Gregory. You will love being friends with them.
Mei God Bless You And Keep You. Mei His Guiding Light Shine Upon You.
