I have such fond memories of Rick living across the street when we were kids. Back then country kids played outside all day, and Rick was always around. He even taught me how to swim in the canal. Rest in peace, my friend. My deepest sympathy to the family.

Hi dad, there's not a day that goes by where I don't pick up my phone to call you. I think that bub definitely needed you up there in heaven. I'm sorry you had to go through all of that pain while on earth. No matter what I will forever be your baby. Missing you always, loving you forever.
