Sorry for you loss ,I have so many memories of Rick and Kathy when they would come to Virginia to visit! Uncle Warren would play the guitar and Rick would sing. The families would all gather most of the time at Aunt Birds home. Oh what a good time we would have.
I have always thought that Rick really wished he lived in Virginia he love everything about it especially Barry Mullins and the mountains. West Virginia Take Me Home ! Rest in peace cousin May God give the family comfort and peace. Love Sandy
