"It is not always about flesh and blood but the heart which makes the family. Call them your kin, your unit, your home, your folks, whatever name you call them. Thank God for those who make us feel like we belong and who accepts us like family." Rick was that person to me. Love and miss him terribly.

\"What is family ? They were the people who claimed you… in good, in bad, in parts, or in whole. They were the ones who showed up, who stayed there regardless…that was Rick!I will always consider it an honor & blessing to have had Rick in my life for 30+ years.I miss him

To have known Rick for 30 + years was an honor. Started out being coworkers & ending up family! I always thought of it like…
Rick found a stray dog, took it home, met the family & let me , the old stray, hang around. I'm so blessed because of Rick… he gifted me a family! Rick and Emily were right there for me every important event. I shared Thanksgivings, Christmas, graduations, weddings, births & get togethers.
To have that special man in my life was truly a blessing. So much love I have for Rick, Emily and the rest of the family. He was a great human being❣️
