family, friends and local community are devastated following
the passing of Rikki and we are all struggling to come to
terms with this senseless loss in such tragic circumstances.
Rikki was a typical teenager full of life and vibrancy and
he always had a smile and a friendly greeting when you passed
him on the street and he was regarded as a really nice lad.
Rikki was from a very close family and had a strong circle
of friends and he was always happy in their company.
The conduct and dignified reaction of his friends following
his passing, with the floral tributes and the candlelit
vigils on the village green to his memory has restored our
faith in young people.
The thoughts and prayers of the people of Burradon and Camperdown
are with his family and friends.
