Ritchie was talented, he was kind hearted and didn't deserve to live such a short life. I am a huge fan of his and I'm only 21, he died before I was even born even before my parents were born. That just goes to show that his legacy truly lives on. He has influcenced many bands and artist's including los lobos themselves (who sang the vocals for the movie "la bamba") to los lonely boys. Music really did die on that fateful day. REST IN PEACE Ritchie <3

Iam a very big fan I can't count how many times I have seen this movie and I still catch my self crying like a baby I wished he would have lived longer it was so sad and still is that his life was cut short and his poor mother just thinking how she felt at the time breaks my heart he was so good very sad GOD BLESS HIM AND HIS MEMORY R.I.P ONE DAY WE WILL MEET IN HEAVEN

Ritchie has inspired me in,so many ways.RIP Ritchie

  • Exploring History From The Ground Up!

    I enjoy spending time exploring cemeteries, reading and photographing headstones of celebrities and civilians alike, and learning about the lives and deaths of these so-called "permanent residents" of the graveyards and mausoleums. This blog chronicles those experiences.

    In addition to this blog, some of my older material is archived at Buried Treasures at LisaBurks.com

    One of the cemeteries I'm most interested in these days is Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif. I wrote about its legal problems for the LA Daily News' community hub, ValleyNews.com from August 2006 to December 2008, when Valley News ceased operations. In response to reader requests to have one central source of information, I created and continue to maintain Grand View Memorial Park (dot) Info.
