Meeting Rick and Nancy at Josh’s baseball games at Maryville University was a true delight. My son was a roommate of Josh. Josh is a kind, caring person which you can tell he got from his parents. Though we only hung out with them at a couple of baseball games, Rick was a genuinely good person. Our family’s prayers are with Nancy, Josh and their entire family. Cherish the memories not the sorrow. Peace be with you. Rob and Mary

I meant Mr. Rick in the early 2000’s when working for a General Contractor. Over the years our paths crossed a few times. Most recent years I had the privilege of working with his family members. Rick could be a little “grumpy” sometime but not for long. He was a good man & I’m so sorry for your loss.

Hello
I never met Mr. Bonds, however, I have known two of his children and I am certain that he was a fabulous influence on them and the whole Bonds family.
I am so sorry for your loss Cyndi and Shelley. I know this is a challenging time but I am certain that you will have wonderful memories forever.
Sincerely,
Judy Miller
