“RICARDO OWEN Palmer, we miss you every day.” It’s been two years since his death, and to his family and friends, it seems like just yesterday.

His parents, Annette Mantack and Fredrick Palmer, were still at a loss as they celebrated his birthday on October 12. Ricardo Palmer, also known as ‘Likkle’, was a funloving individual who enjoyed listening to and making music.

He would make everyone smile. He was a jovial person. His brothers, Khallief, Aaron, Richard, and French, and his sisters, ShanaKay, Jamika, and Aaliyah enjoyed having him around, and his death made them realise the extent of their love for him.

“I think about him every day,” Richard said. He had big dreams for himself and his three-year-old daughter. Jazmine didn’t get the chance to know how amazing her father was, but she is loved by his family.

“Happy birthday, Ricardo. Gone, but never forgotten.”
