    I’m so sorry for your loss. It was such a shock to hear. We had a lot of fun together when we were kids.

    Jana – Larry – Clint and entire family, Sudie and I are very sorry for your loss. He was the “Best Friend” of many, and ours all through high-school and later as neighbors on “the creek” at St. Paul Cemetery. Rick moved away and we moved away, but we still managed to keep in touch. Sometimes we got together during Florida vacations and other times by phone, or with messages through Jana or Mike & Mary. He had a loving and generous heart and will be sorely missed.

    “The good Lord willing and if the creek don’t rise”, we’ll see you April 2nd.
