    A large part of your dad’s and my life will be empty. I loved you as though you were my son. In the last several years it was a blessing to see you and your dad embrace your love for each other. Your Dad is missing the phone calls from you. He wants to hear your voice again. I know you are with our Lord. You were a blessing to me and I will miss you. May God place his loving arms around the family in the coming days and years. Loving, “Your Step-mom” Cathy

    Rick, was wonderful neighbor and friend for many years, always there to help, the kind of person we all should strive to be more like. Rick always had a smile on his face and always working so hard but he always made time for others, he will be greatly missed, my deepest sympathy to his family I cannot imagine the feeling of loss for such a wonderful human being.

    I was trying to locate you when I came across this. You were my ex husband’s boss and a good guy! I’m shocked to see of your passing and at such a young age. You will be missed!
