    From one of the guys “back in the day” from Rushville who was a few years younger than you but remember you so very well, keep the volume down “up there.” To his family, my deepest condolences for you loss and know that many of us who were so grateful to cross Rick’s path in life are better off from that experience. Peace out & RIP.

    Our hearts go out to you and the family. We’re so sorry we can’t be there in person to share special memories and stories of Rick with you. There are countless SOB shows, where we know he was most comfortable–doing his “thang” with you, Aaron and Ben. How fortunate we were to have Southern Oblivion play at Jeff’s birthday party! What a great memorable time!! We’re thinking of you and know that Rick is jamming away with all the greats! Bless him and may he now rest in peace.
