Rick and I were classmates at Holmes many years ago, and we reconnected in the recent past via Facebook. All the words in the dictionary can’t take away your pain, but I’m hoping that a few heartfelt words from people who cared for Rick and who are praying for his family will at least ease a bit of your heartache. He was a fine and gentle man with a big smile and that’s quite a legacy to leave behind. Please accept my deep sympathy for your loss. May God bless all of you.
