I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Rick was a great man that will be missed by many. What a since of humor that man had, love to play practical jokes ...well he did on me. I was at a store, can't remember which one, but I was looking down and all of the sudden someone comes up beside me and roars. I squeal and look up there is Rick giggling at me. I loved that man.
