  1. Ricko adds alot to the show. It is wonderful to see the patience he has with his children and his strong belief in his heritage. He has shared some very difficult memories about his brothers deaths. It is so touching and might help others appreciate their siblings more and forgive their flaws. I hope he stays on the show for a long time, he adds a wonderful balance.
