I am shocked and deeply saddened by the news of bro rickvon's passing.

Tears are swelling up in my hears as I am typing this post......

I was first introduced to bro rickvon during Jag's thread on "Jaguar Go KL". Bro rickvon has this characteristic wide grin and stylish outfit when he rides his bike. In addition, I was so impressed with how bro rickvon would help bro jag print his documents and hand-deliver it to bro jag at his hotel. From then onwards, I know bro rickvon is one person I would love to meet when I drive up to Msia in future at that point of time. He is the epitome of freedom and adventurous spirit. I really wanted to see him, touch his superbike, take a pic with him and shake his hands. Now I can only regret that he has gone ahead of us.

I still remember bro rickvon's many encouraging posts and PMs to me and his last post to me was "..... stay around longer this time round, dude. Hope you do not go missing again......". It has been months since I logged in here but honestly speaking, bro rickvon's words to me kept ringing in my ears ever since I last logged in here. I thank bro Ace for his SMS to remind me that I still have a place in this forum. If not for Ace, I would not have learnt of bro rickvon's passing.

Bro rickvon, rest in peace. I will always remember you.

=D> That is impeccable ... U R an ace with archive retrievals & tributes... :good:

I feel he may have left but he left a living charismatic print behind with many who knew him well and the more great experiences they have shared ... the greater the tears it may become to remember the good times he spent as a living memory...

I have not met or exchanged personally with RickVon but I am feeling I can relate to his whims and joys with living to the fullest... :tq: Ace for creating this incredible atmosphere...Gone is RickVon but he won our grace with his character... :prayer:

I signed up finally after following this forum for a while now. The reason is to thank Ace for posting the tribute to Ricky. I hv had so much admiration and respect for Ricky. His demise has been very hard for all who loved him as a friend, relative, 'bro' and mentor. Going thru the postings makes me realize how much of an impact he had in all our lives however short the time we had with him.
Thank you Ace.... :tq:

Thank you all... this short tribute is just a little contribution on my part to ensure that this thread has a finality and closure. That others may know him through these threads and why he is missed by all who knew him. :)
