So very sorry for your loss. I knew Rick briefly from having the pleasure of going to church together. He often sat in front of me there. What a sweet gentle man. So thankful to have met him. Praying your broken hearts will be comforted by the peace only God can give.

I remember Rick and my Mama having crabapple fights in the front yard, They always had so much fun together. I loved Rick with all my heart. He was like a brother to me, not a cousin. For some reason he got mad at me and never saw him after that. I dont know why but if I did something to him that hurt him I hope it has been forgiven, I love you Rick, May you Rest In Peace.

Rick is my cousin, always such a sweet guy. He always called me Cotton Candy. He'll never be forgotten. What a heartbreaking loss.
