So sorry to hear of your husband's passing. You may not remember me after all these years but I once worked at St. Paul UCC. Just wanted to let you know that my church now (Concord Presbyterian) is planning to once again have a grief support group after having to suspend because of Covid. It is open to anyone in the community and you are most welcome to share with others in their time of sadness, in a loving spiritual atmosphere. God bless.

I haven't known Rick for very long, but he was one of the feistiest people I ever met! He also had such a big heart. We are neighbors of Pam & Rick, and any time we would see him working in the garage or yard, he would smile, make conversation, and get in a few fun-loving jabs. Gonna miss him!

Pamela, Rick was a high school class mate of my husband and myself. I am so completely shocked and saddened by his passing.... Many years ago when you lived in Sandalwood subdivision ( I don't know if you still live there or not) I was your mail carrier and I ran into him a time or two then. I can't tell you how many years it's been since I saw him... but when I did see him so long ago, it was like we had just left high school and no time had passed, although many, many years had passed. In high school Rick and I always had so much fun together and he was an amazing friend. When I saw him later in life at your subdivision we laughed and reminisced about so many good times. I sell gravestones and it's part of my job to regularly check the obits and I have to tell you, seeing his photo and name completely threw me and I am only feeling heaviness and sadness as I think of him being gone. My sincerest sympathy to you and your family.
