What a beautiful video commemorating Ricks life and all the lives his has touched. Loved by all...may he rest in peace. I pray for strength and comfort to be gifted to you Liz, his children and all others where his absence in body is felt. I know his spirit is with you forever and his memories will carry on! The video both made me smile and brought many tears to my eyes. I hold the fondest memories of "uncle Rick" in my heart. My deepest sympathies to all.
With love,
Kim Slater
