Reva and family,

I’m so very sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. He and you were great to work with and getting to know you both was a true blessing. In the world of our work, he was a breath of fresh air with his calm and settling manner. He is missed. My prayers are with you.

Rick always had a sunny disposition and a joke ready to tell. He could always gift us with a laugh. He was a very smart guy and had a big heart. Love, hugs and prayers for family, friends and church family.
