BURRILLVILLE -- For participants and fans alike, Monday night’s R.I. District IV Major Division (11-12) Tournament championship game was something like a Six Flags water slide – jam-packed with thrilling twists and turns, while getting everyone soaked.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Sone and Chip Ratsamy have been watching the transformation since their son, Simon, was killed in a violent car crash a week ago.
Parked across the street from their quaint cottage on Park Avenue, his sleek, black Honda Civic has become a shrine, the hood now completely hidden by bouquets of roses, carnations and other flowers.
Friends, and total strangers, too, have been piling on the floral tributes since the aspiring paramedic, 21 years old, passed away.
