Sad news indeed. I got a bit reacquainted with Ricky at my father's funeral, first time I had seen him when since we were kids. Now I am sorry I didn't get back to Welsh, it would have been good to see him again.

I am Rob Hinchee, a second cousin, my grandfather Duke was brother of Ricky's grandfather, Ben,

My condolences to Susan and the family.

I am so heartbroken to hear the news about Mr. (Dr.) Hinchee. I enjoyed the time we shared when we both worked at St. Louis and will always remember Mr. Hinchee as a remarkable man of faith and honor. Please accept my heartfelt sorrow.

I met Rick & Susan when I was a caregiver for his mother-in-law, Gretchen Bunin several years ago.
Rick always seemed to go out of his way to say Hello or make me feel welcome when I was there every weekend. I enjoyed his stories and just listening to him talk and interact with Susan, Ms Gretchen and especially Abby.
I especially enjoyed his sermons. I found them very down to earth and understanding. He will w greatly missed!!!!!!

Dear Father,

If life exists beyond the body an the being, maybe we will meet again to start from the beginning and love each other again without thinking about the end.

Thank you for giving me life
Love you
John Paul
