I was so sorry to learn that Rick has passed away but at the same time I rejoice that he is in heaven with a new body and is no longer sick. He singing with the Saints of old and most importantly he's met his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ face to face and is rejoicing and praising God. To the family take comfort that you can see him again. Rick is a great man, husband, Father, Paw Paw and friend. I'm missing him but know that I shall see him again. May God give His peace to the family in this time of great loss and sorrow.
