Hi Tom, first, thank you for letting strangers love your brother and your whole family for giving Ritchie's love for music to us. I just watched LaBama this past weekend for the first time..I was not born until 1962, but I remember these songs growing up. I am now forever a fan of this fine young man. In my research online of your brother, I see where your brother, had a bracelet in his belongings with the name Donna engraved on it at the time he passed. Do you know the story behind that? Did he buy it for her or did she give it to him?..I love this love story in the movie.. I would love to know.. God Bless your family and God has blessed Ritchie with everlasting music for us..
