    My heart goes out to you all on another painful loss of a close family member. Rick was a wonderful man and I was lucky to know him and count him as a friend. So many will continue to mourn his absence in the coming months when they go to call on him and he’s not here. What a significant loss to all who had the pleasure to know him.
