    The Lord has taken you to a much better place. We will miss you Uncle Rick. Say HI! to Dad and Grandpa for us!!

  8. I am very sorry for your loss. Although I did not know Rick, I know how it feels to lose someone you love and for that reason I want to extend my sympathy and share a few words of encouragement. Psalm 34:18 says that God cares when we are broken at heart and He saves us when our spirit is crushed. Revelation 21:4 mentions a time when He will wipe away all the tears from our eyes and death will be no more. We can look forward to the time when no one will ever die again. May these thoughts bring you comfort and hope as it has for me.
