“He wanted to do more than he was actually doing, he wanted to make a difference. When I look at it now, I feel like he probably didn’t feel like he was doing enough and that was definitely something that hurt … just with a lot of the things that have been happening in the country and in the industry.

Those are the things that didn’t sit well with him. It’s just a whole lot of worldly things that he struggled with,” she said.

“Riky did struggle with addiction and had a very good run and then, unfortunately, struggled again towards the end. That was hard for him to feel like he’s kind of failed, but I have to say we held him close through all those moments. We gave him so much love, even though he felt that he wasn’t worthy of it probably.”
