Still Praying for you and the family cousin... 🙏 It’s amazing how even after this, you can muster enough strength to say we serve an awesome God. There was a reason he was recently baptized… the Resurrection.
But my prayers and condolences to Rickey Smiley and his family bc no matter how it happened he still lost his son
@Caleb DoesMemes I think we should see how this story unfolds bc I really don’t think he is talking about organization of parents bc there are parents that bury their kids everyday but not every parent sacrifices their kid 🤔….I’m just saying let’s get some more info bc none of this stuff is far fetched just cause it’s not happening to us 😬
Rickey praying for you and your family I feel your pain it's hard but THE LORD JESUS will see you throughI had to bury my son my love to the family one day at a time each day you'll get stronger as JESUS CHRIST showers love patience among you all as HE is caring you through bleeding upon the family 💕
My prayers and condolences to Ricky Smiley and his family, I lost my son a year ago and I know how you feel
He needs an ear. We can give him several. We can hold space. We can pray. We can give love. He's reaching out. Let us be there for him- he has been here for us for YEARS. Ricky, we love you man. Truly.
Rickey, my heart goes out to you. I lost my son 3 years ago, he was only 18, to fentanyl poisoning. One thing that helped me was talking to other people with similar stories - no one else understands. Everyone finds their own way through it. It will never go away, but I promise you it will get better. With love in my heart, I wish you the best.
Same here on May 1, 2020 I lost my son.
I can feel his pain lord please give him strength ❤RIP Brandon
We all here for you Rickey, we care, we love you and we are praying.
I'm so deeply sorry for your loss Ricky 😢. Please except my prayers and condolences and may God's grace and tender mercies comfort you and your extended family .much love always
Man, this hurts! You have my DEEPEST condolences and many prayers for comfort and peace of mind. 🙏🏽
The strength of you making this video. I can't Imagine. We love you Rickey
@Breeze With Africa Sweetie that's your opinion that you are entitled to as everyone else on here is. However, as I stand on my comment as well as not everyone grieves the same, and maybe just maybe using social media is Mr.Smiley way of coping with the loss of his son is all I'm saying. I've walked in his shoes, I know how losing a child feels no matter their age. I Thank God that I can show compassion towards my fellow man. You have a bless day.
To those of you who feel that Ricky should have not shared the passing of his son on social media. First of all none of us know what Ricky's mindset was at that moment especially if it was unexpected. How I know firsthand. oftentimes it takes reality to kick in from such a loss.7 years ago I lost my son unexpectedly and I went about my life as if he was still here until I had to make his funeral arrangements which hit me like a ton of bricks. Reality foundly kicked in and 7 years later I'm still grieving off and on. There's no pain Worster than losing your child. Maybe sharing his loss on social media is helping Rickey to cope with such a loss on a parent never gets over from but tries to live with. that void can never be filled. I just can't believe how insensitive some of these comments are which leaves me to wonder had it been your child would you guys would be of the same opinion? I just hope that our Heavenly Father will give Rickey and his family the strength and comfort they need to endure. the loss of his child.My condolences to the family.
@Breeze With Africa what in the hell are you speaking about. Hollywood has nothing to do with the pain of losing ones, child. Rickey Smiley is a parent and farther first but I guess you wouldn't know that.
We love you Rickey!!! Prayers to u and your family....GOD will get u thru this....That u have to believe!🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
I lost and buried my 30 year old son in June of 2021. Praying for you, his mom, and your family. I felt like part of life was sucked out of me. My heart was broken with missing pieces. Only God can heal you through this.
I'm so sorry for your loss..I lost my precious son Jacob to suicide on March 14th 2021..I'm just watching your video and I know your pain..this is just something no parent should ever go through or will ever understand until it happens...love and prayers to you and your family and your sweet precious boy.
I lost a son too! I can understand, you are so strong. Please take some time to rest. Your son is okay now, may he rest in peace. My sincerest condolences to you, your family and all of your loved ones. Sorry for your loss.
It took me a few days to comment but Ricky, I want you to know that your fans are with you! We are here praying for you and your family. Losing a loved one is extremely painful and difficult. No one wants to be a member of the club, but all too often, it occurs. My sincere condolences to all who loved your baby. May God give you (family & friends) comfort during this difficult time.
I’m praying for you and your family. Unfortunately I lost my only son in 2014 in a vehicle accident two weeks before his 20 birthday. I understand exactly hat you mean when you talk about the way you are feeling. I went from being shocked,sad,mad and now I’m just at peace knowing my son is in heaven with zero heartache or pain.I too beat myself up a lot about wishing I would’ve been a better mother etc but I feel in my heart my son knew I loved him and that’s truly all I care about.
incredibly sorry for your loss & sending love to you and your family, rickey ❤
@BIG V SOUTH PHILLY 215
its sickening and very disturbing to see mature adults run to social media and broadcast their grief. Makes you question their true intentions 🤔
@BIG V SOUTH PHILLY 215 stuff and gtho!
@Aaron3365 your on multiple of his post accusing him and saying the same things. Go get some business about yourself he can grieve and do what he wants you don't like it??unsubscribe and block the user so you don't see it anymore.
@BIG V SOUTH PHILLY 215 or to tell fans or people what’s actually happening and to grieve the death of his lost son.
Prayers for everyone who has lost someone so close to you. I have lost many aunts, uncles and cousins but no one this close. You all are truly in my prayers!!
My prayers are with you and your family. I know the hurt you are going through. I lost my youngest son, Michael to Colon Cancer at 27 years old, coming up 8 years ago. Only God is sustaining me daily. I pray for Every parent who has lost and buried a child. I pray the Comfort & Peace of our Lord & Savior Jesus, will be upon your family. 🙏🏾✝️💞💯
I can’t imagine the pain you all are in. Praying for you all. 😢
We love you Rickey Smiley! Praying for you and his mom during this time! God is STILL ABLE! ❤️
My condolences Ricky, praying for his Mother, You, his Siblings and the entire Family's comfort, peace and strength. May GOD keep you wrapped in his loving arms 🙏🏾
Thank you for being so vulnerable Rickey and allowing us to share this moment of grief. I am crying along with you. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
He set it all up for that life insurance money obviously. Noone records all this unless they have a hugeeee ego and want attention.
SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS RICKEY
Rickey sending my deepest condolence to u and your family.
Life has its own way, I sorry for you and your family. God bless you to get though this..

My deepest condolences to you and your family! I lost my youngest son on June 10, 2021. I so feel your pain. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around you and your family. Your strength is amazing to me! May God bless you! ❤ Never forget what an amazing person and father you are!
Mr Rickey, i lost my first born on Thanksgiving 2022 & i thought i was gonna lose my faith in GOD. I prayed, prayed, locked myself in my room with a old book, destroying every page, letting it all out, then i heard GOD speaking to me i have him here in my arms now. My prayers are with you & your family. GOD BLESS
Rest in Peace Brandon 🙏🏽, may God grant you all strength 🙏🏽
I lost my husband at 36. I know how hard that was on his parents and how bad it hurt them. Time goes on but you never really get over losing somebody. At some point, it’s always going to hurt again. I believe in God’s promise of reuniting us with our loved ones again one day. I hope this brings you hope and peace. Love and prayers to you and your family. 🙏
I lost my 15 year old son 16 months ago to a battle with depression, and am just now starting to make sense of this new reality... I am feeling every bit of your pain. I am so sorry. God is with you.
Prayers for ALL of you whom lost your children 🙏 I CAN NOT IMAGINE what you are going through just know that GOD WILL HELP YOU get through this. YOU ALL will NEVER get OVER it, it just gets a LITTLE EASIER to deal with through TIME. 💕💔💕🙌🏽
My son is dealing with the same & I'm so lost, becuz I don't know what to do, he's in the military & although he serves his country they're definitely showing no concern. I'm so sorry that u lost your son, sending hugs & Prayers up for u.
Deepest Sympathy & GOD Bless y'all .
My condolences may God grant you peace
I will definitely keep you in my prayers Brother Rickey! My mother just mentioned this to me yesterday. You are most definitely a warrior for Christ. God will continue to bless you with the joy and peace that you need during this tough moment. We love you man of God!! 🙏🏽❤️🔥
My deepest Condolences on the loss of your son. It is tough to imagine what you're going through. My mother used to tell me that the loss of a child is unbearable and it's hard to bury a child, but I pray for your strength and comfort in our Creator during this time. 🙏🙏
I don’t know you Rickey but I know the pain that you’re in and I’m so so so sorry. There’s nothing worse than death when a loved one is ripped away from you and you didn’t have a chance to say goodbye. That is the worst pain you could ever feel in this life in my opinion.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your son. My heart aches for you and your family. May God protect you and give you peace.❤️🙏🏽
Rickey, thank you this is real. My son passed away year ago same situation. My heart is heavy and it has taken so much out of my husband, I watched him break and it was very scary. We’re still in SHOCk. I feel your pain and thank you. “27” years old gone not ever forgotten 8:49
You’ve stood in the gap for so many now let us stand in the gap for you and your family. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
We are praying for you, Rickey. I can't imagine the pain you feel.
I am so very sorry for your loss Rickey. My prayers are with you and your family. I pray that you go through a healthy grieving process. It's definitely ok to cry. Let it out, talk to someone, and pray. God bless you.
Mr.Smiley,I am so sorry for your loss. The strength that you have for your family and other people is remarkable.I listen to your show every morning. You give me a good laugh in the morning when I am down...Thanks for being an inspiration to all of us.I ask Jehovah to be with you and your family through this difficult time. Just know that Brandon is in a deep sleep and only Jehovah God can wake him. Trust and believe that you will see your son again ,if you believe in God's promise and his words. Jehovah told us his name in his word the bible, not just a name ,but to let you know he is our father and friend and we can rely upon him...Amen..all glory and the power belongs to him,all we have to do is trust and believe and follow his commandments..Brandon is gone from this earth,but is not forgotten...Keep your faith and don't lose hope and trust in Jehovah.. Amen.. Rest in peace Brandon...I wish you and family well Mr.Smiley!! Keep shining,because you have made a world of difference! With my deepest sympathy TQ
You have my deepest condolences Rickey… you help and support so many and now it’s your time to be helped and supported… You a awesome example of what a Father is suppose to be… Keep pushing and leaning on God!!
I know your pain. My parents lost both of their sons: my brothers. The pain becomes embedded into your soul at the deepest level. It’s a new way of living and you have to keep your faith. Praying for your family.
A sudden death is one of the hardest to go through. Everything that Ricky just said about how he is feeling is so so true. Your body, mind and soul goes through a lot with deaths. I'm praying for you and your family. I'm so glad I got to know who Brandon was from your reality show.
Me, too ❤️
Praying for you and your family 🙏🏽❤
My heart goes out to you Rickey Smiley. I loss my grandson almost two years ago. Very painful experience. My prayers go out to your mom. Let us all pray for our children more and more every day. This earth holds no treasures. We must look to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith. Lord have mercy on us❤️❤️🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽.
My condolences to you and your entire family my brother. It's been a while. I also lived a similar nightmare and it doesn't get any better but we just learn how to cope with the harsh reality of losing your child. I lost my daughter Feb of 2020 and I haven't been the same since for multiple reasons. She was 19 and vibrant and intelligent just like her mom. I raised my daughter by myself after losing her mom. The very first thought I had in my head was... how am I gonna raise this beautiful little girl without her mom being present?.... sheesh or what do I tell our daughter when she asks where's mommy? Brother I had no great clue how I or if I was gonna be able to deal. But myself and God almighty did a great job. So after losing my daughter...the first person I thought about was her mom and than I realized that two of the most important people in my life are no longer with me. But I prey and hope that their together. God is so great and I hope that the sun shines upon you and your family with great blessings and strength. Purple and gold love brother. Peace.
I can't even imagine how difficult this must be for you sir. I have two daughters. I couldn't imagine losing them. We will pray for you daily my friend. I helped my best friend after his son was killed in a car accident. It was terrible. I offer a small idea to maybe help with the pain. After some time,......go do something you've always wanted to do. Something that you've never thought of doing even. I'm so sorry for your loss sir. God Bless
All these years you brought us laughter and made us feel better thru national crisis. To see you hurt like this makes me hurt. The Lord has his hand on you my brother. You are in my prayers God bless you.
Goodness gracious! My heartfelt condolences to Rickey and his family. You're someone that has so much love and compassion for others. Your pain is palpable. Stay strong king. Much love and prayers. 🙏🏾
Man, take care of yourself and your family. Don't worry about informing everyone else.
Some people are OK with grieving publicly. Don't assume you know his intentions.
So so sorry RICKY SMILEY Our deepest condolences to you and your family 💔🙏
Thank you for allowing us to share in your grief. I don't know if I would be able to do this. You and your family have my deepest condolences. Please don't question whether or not you were a good dad to him. You were the best for him and all you can do is all you can do, and all you can do is enough. We all know that you have the best intentions for your family.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your precious son. I can’t imagine the heartbreak loosing a child sending prayers
There is no such thing as a perfect parent. As a single mother of 3 boys, I am hard on them for a reason. Some might say too hard. We just want the best for our kids. You did your best for your kids and other people kids. Love you and continually praying for you, the family and friends.
Ricky, I am so sorry that this tragedy has happened. Unfortunately, this is the grief process and we are all here for you as you go through.
We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share "you" with us in the moment, but I PROMISE we don't deserve this! Take YOUR time to take care of YOU and focus on YOU and your loved ones. You've ALWAYS done the most for us. Now it's time to take your time and allow us to support you however best we can. Sending all my love and condolences from Tuscaloosa.
YES I AGREE. But sometimes people NEEDS to release the pain out in the way they only know how. I KNOW!!
I feel like it may end up being very theraputic for him to share what he's feeling and going through on here.
@Adrianetta O'Neal Yea, I considered that too. It's all just so heartbreaking.
I agree but believe it or not this part of his grieving.Talking to us is a comfort zone this maybe a way that keeping him from going off the deep end.
I send my deepest condolences to you and your family. Looking at my daughter as she sleeps and I can't even phantom the thought. May God comfort you through this time of physical loss, as He gains another child in the kingdom🙏🏽
It's a process young man, and as you go through it, know that you are not alone! your community cares and will send our prayers!
We love you and your family Rick Rickey🙏🏽🙏🏽! I’m praying for your strength during this devastating time❤!
