Rickey Smith has touched the lives of all those who he encountered. This man was truly one of a kind in which his generosity, humble heart, infectious laugh, and astounding voice will not be forgotten in all of our hearts. Every person he came across in his years with us has a story of how he changed their life.

We are friends of Rickey and his family from Oklahoma City. This fund is being set up in honor of our great friend to offer support to those he loved so emphatically. The funds will contribute to the costs associated with funeral arrangements and specifically to help alleviate accruing costs during this time for Rickey's family, girlfriend, and little daughter.

All money donated will be directly given to Rickey's immediate family. 

We love you our sweet friend, until we see you again.

Devastated to learn of Rickey's tragic passing. He was such a light on Season 2 of Idol and absolutely the most positive and joyful presence, as well as being so very talented and much beloved by his fellow contestants, as well as the producers and Idol staff. I'll bet he is singing up a storm with Prince and Michael Johns! Sincere prayers and condolences to his family,. I pray that all who remember him will take this opportunity to show love to the family he leaves behind.

My prayers are with you all. I remember what a positive kindred spirit he was when we were young. When boys his age were joining gangs he was cracking jokes and singing boyz II men songs. He will be missed.
