Rickey Smiley tells a touching story about young man that he met years ago as a baby. Rickey reconnected with him recently when he spoke at a juvenile detention center. At that event, Rickey stayed after to speak with the young man. A few days ago, Rickey received a message inviting him to his funeral, after he was killed at a gas station. Already heartbroken at the news, Rickey was impacted at the funeral by witnessing the young man’s mother struggling with grief as she buried her own child.
