My cousin Rick, I will miss you. Even though we weren't there today, Robby & I were with you in our hearts as we watched the service. The last few days I have been reflecting on all the memories from childhood to adulthood and there wasn't a single one that wasn't a good, warm, funny memory. That is a sign of a life well lived. I know that when you got to Heaven, there was a lot of wonderful people there to welcome you and hug you again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and with all the family. Love you always.

Annie, I know the pain you are feeling. He's with Dale now and having a grand time. My heart goes out to you and my prayers above all else. It is a struggle and painful now but work at living WITH the grief not IN the grief, that can only happen as you turn your grief to God to walk you through it. I will always remember the day Rick told me he was getting married and was soooo excited. He truly loved you!!
