  1. This world lost one of the true originals. Rick had a unique way of viewing things, and could always find the humor in any situation. If there wasn’t laughter in heaven before, there is now!

  2. Well… I’m not really sure what to say… Your dad was such a character, larger than life. We are just so sorry for your families loss. We are sending our love and prayers for you and Doug and the kids. He will be dearly missed.
