Our 35th wedding anniversary will be in February 2019. I love him with all my heart, but Rick always loved me more. I was so blessed to have this man as my husband. He taught me how to love, to really love, another person.
Not long ago we finalized the adoption of our 7 year old granddaughter, whose mother passed away in 2015. Rick was the only "dad" our granddaughter ever knew. So continue to pray for her and our family. We lost a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a man who loved God with all his heart.
Rick, with your passing a huge void is left, but we know Jesus was there to embrace you and welcome you into the home He has prepared for all of us. No more tears, you will never be tired and weary again. I so look forward to being reunited with you again one day.
Love you always, your wife forever, Casceil.
