  1. My deepest sympathy goes out to Rick’s family. I saw him, mostly, when he couldn’t see, for more years than either he or I could remember, until Lori took him on. He was a wonderful, caring, good person. I feel very fortunate that I called him friend. Hugs and prayers.

  2. Rick, you were a good cousin and friend. You will be missed so very much. We had a few good times that I will look back on fondly. I’m glad we got to take that trip together to Idaho, even if it was for a sad reason. All my love and support to the family, I pray for your strength in the weeks and months to come, love to you all.

  3. So sorry for the loss of your loved one. Praying you will find peace and comfort in God’s love and tender mercies.
