  1. :( so sad

  2. My hearts break to read this story. My wife and I were just talking the other day wondering why we haven't seen Rick at our house recently. He was such an amazing person. Our dog would hear his truck and go crazy knowing that Rick would let her into the cab and give her treats. My kids would come out to see Rick and his big brown truck. He was always asking how our family was and truly cared. He will be missed big time by us and by everyone else he came into contact with. What an example of a real man. One who truly cared about you. My prayers are with his family that are left with void.
