    I am so very sorry for your loss. I knew Rick was special when I hired him back in the early 90’s. I trusted him to carry the practice forward and he did not disappoint. I am honored to have known him.

    The celebration of Life today was beautiful and certainly honored your Father’s contribution while living on earth. He lived as a servant of God and so many people are living better because having known him. I wish I could have spent more time with him. Yes, I met him at your wedding, but did not take time to get to know what a special man he was. For that I am sorry.
    Peace to you and your family!
