To All My Family,
I know we don't understand this and our hearts ache and we are filled with unanswered questions. I know that Rick is in the arms of God and wanting us to be happy and not sad...easier said then done. He would want us to carry on his nature of good deeds, continue on with his legacy of being a giver. My tribute to him will be to always help others when they need it with a smile on my face and love in my heart!

I Love You All!
Angel Hugs...
