We only met Rick a few times when he came to North Carolina to visit his brother Phil. Rick was an amazing man. A true warrior for God. He will dearly be missed. We want you to know Rick that we are still awaiting on the Lord's coming so we can meet again. We are praying for the Lord to give you comfort in this time of loss. With love, Terry & Darlene
