We are so saddened to hear of Rick's passing. His infectious smile will stay with us for ever. He was so kind and generous. He welcomed us into his home and made us feel a part of his extended family. He and Lil raised a wonderful family and his legacy will live on in them. Wayne will no longer beable to enjoy a burbon with him, but the knowlege and wisdom they shared will not be forgotten! The first garden tomato that I eat each year will remind me of him and his tomato garden! He appreciated the little things. Above all he appreciated his family and took good care of them. Lil trully was his sweatheart.

I can only imagine the big smile my dad gave Rick when he entered the gates of heaven. Old friends reunited! With tears in my eyes, I remember his kind eyes and matter of fact way. He was a good man. I'm so sorry for your loss and pray that God will lessen your pain and sorrow.

I already miss Rick. He was the best Father-in-law there could be. Never had a cross word with me. I'm thankful that he was a part of my and my family's lives for as long as he was. His influence will remain for generations to come. A really special man.
