I am saddened to hear of Rick's passing. I have not seen Rick in many years but have found memories of when we were roommates and part of the singles group at Prestoncrest Churchof Christ in Dallas in the 80s. He was a terrific guy and a great influence on my life. We had many great times together.

My uncle Rick was such a great guy. He always seemed to be super positive and happy. I always enjoyed getting to see him at the family get togethers. I know for a fact he loved his wife and daughter in a way that we should all strive to love our family. I can't wait til I can see him again. Love you uncle Rick.
