    So sad to hear of Ricks passing.
    I hadn’t seen Rick in years after our school days. He bought a little buck goat from me a couple months ago. It was good to see him and catch up on old times. He spoke of his girls, I could tell he was very proud of his family. The short time we met I could tell he matured into a good family man. I’m sure he will be sadly missed. My thoughts are with his family, so sorry for your loss.

    I was lucky enough to be one of Ricks classmates all through school, and he was a good friend, one of my inter circle, you knew he always had your back no matter what, and bail money if necessary, you always knew you were going to have a good time if Rick was with you, I have so many hilarious memories, I could write a sitcom. My deepest sympathies to his entire family and to all who loved him, rest in peace my friend.
