    Was hoping to find some info as to how Ricardo is doing! What a nice man he was and such a loving family. Hope all is well with everyone.


    Ricardo seems like such a sweetheart. I usually don’t feel sorry for the people but I did this time. He seemed so lost, so sad, and in a lot of pain. I wish we could find out what happened to him. I pray that he’s been successful in his recovery and the he rebuilt his relationships with his kids. For them and for him. You could tell how much the kids love him (which says a lot about him as a dad and as a man) and how much he loves his kids. God bless him and his fam. Good luck Ricardo. You’re in my prayers

    Ricardos transformation was incredible! Awesome to hear after the 90 days he chose to stay another 90. I hope he and his son Rico are well today.

    I wish there was an update on Ricardo and his family… his story really touched my heart!! The longing for the dad that they once had, made me just want to reach in the television and hug his two kids! They were really great and loving kids! I hope they finally got their dad back! On the A&E app, the credits said that he stayed in California, and that he talks to his kids regularly.. my thoughts and prayers are with Ricardo & his son & his daughter! God bless them!! 🙏🏼💗
