Our sympathy to Ricks whole family, he was the best. We will miss his whit and humor and his caring ways. Im so glad he and Audrey found each other after their spouses passed, they were like a couple of teenagers in love, so nice that they had the time together that they had. Rest in peace, Rick and know that noone will fill your absence.

Having met Rick through his late wife Audrey, I wish to extend my sympathy to his family. He was caring and generous, an individual who was liked by many. May you find comfort in knowing he is at peace with our Heavenly Father. Rick will be a guardian angel for those who loved him and cherish his memory. May Rick rest in peace with our Lord.
