Happy 31st Birthday Ricky!
First off, I would like to say that you have really become a very important part of my life. I believe there are people who influence and shape us as persons and for me, you’re one of those. Through these years I’ve learned many things from you, and I seek to follow your good example throughout my life. I wish to be as humble and sincere, as persistent and positive as you are. Never have I seen you be rude, or disrespectful, and those are the things I will always try to mimic. You’ve also made me want to become closer to God, and that’s something that I truly thank you for. Your faith will never cease to amaze me, and I hope that one day, I will have as much faith as you do. Before finishing this, I cannot forget to mention the infinite admiration I have for you as a football player. You are one of those that will surely go down in history, and even though you’re going through hard times, you’ve never lost passion for the sport. I could go on and write a huge paragraph, but what’s true is that you’re a role model for me, and that you will forever be my favorite football player. I wish you the best in this day. I love you very much!
