  • Dear Rick (and family):
    We were saddened to learn about the passing of your mother. I remember you speaking of her often. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Knowing she is with Jesus is such a comfort but missing her will be the hard part. I still sometimes feel like I could just call my Mom and ask her something. We need to get together. Love ya. We are unable to come today but know our prayers will be offered up for the family.

  • Dear Rick, I am very sorry for the loss of your mother. I am keeping you in my thoughts.
