  4. Amazing how people touch our lives…

  5. so sorry, life has so many curve balls!

  6. Thank you for being there for Rick at that horrible time, Diana. All of the community is grieving the loss of Rick.

  7. Beth nailed it. Rick was a part of our family. We are still in shock over this. He loved cigars so I made sure every holiday he received a box of fine stogies. I flagged down the temp driver the other day, Mike Morgan who reminded me of Rick. We talked for about 15 minutes and the tears kept flowing between the two of us. He was loved by so many. Mike told me that Rick's route is out for "bid" with other drivers including himself. That person will have big shoes to fill.

    I was lucky enough to be on Rick's Route and the privilege was all mine. Over the last 2 years I feel like we had one long conversation about Gardening, Life and Family… only 5 minutes at a time. Talking to Rick you have no choice but to walk away in a better mood, I always came running if I heard his truck laboring up our steep driveway for a chance to say Hi and talk a bit. Rick, I'll miss you buddy. To the family and friends of Rick's, I'm truly sad for your loss.

  9. Diana, Thank you for being there for my brother and for your prayers. It is still so hard to believe that my beautiful brother who had such a love for life is gone and due to such a senseless act. Please continue to pray for Rick's four children.
