  • Charlie, Lynn & Family, Rick was a man of strength and compassion. He brought happiness wherever he went. His laugh was infectious and his eyes, simply mesmerizing. The world has lost a very special person, and will never be able to fill the void that has been left behind. Just know this, I am always with you. Be strong, and do his spirit the honor of carrying on his legacy of undiminished joy and passion. Love always, Deb
