I got to know you for about 12 years, during those years you helped me with my car on multiple occasions and we would talk about work and laugh while drinking coffee.
I am very sad that I wont see you again my friend but I'll always remember you and your Dad with lots of love and respect.

Rest in peace Amigo.

How do we understand, the how or why of it?
Our hearts are broken.
Somehow we knew it might come to this, I wish THAT could have made it less devastating.

Your family loves you and wishes you peace on your journey.

And...oh BTW, look out for the rest of us, cause we're not the brightest bunch on the planet!

Most of all, be a guardian for your children. they're doing a good job on their own, but who doesn't need some extra help.

I wish it could have been different, I'm so sorry it wasn't. Rest in peace Rick.

Love, from your sister, Patty
