My big brother was a strongminded christian. He did not fear death...he wanted to make sure his family would be ok. He was a "rock" for so many and will be missed terribly. He loved Katie with an all-inclusive love..they were and will always be soulmates. I will miss him and continue to pray for Katie, Allison and Jennifer. Katie--he taught you how to be strong. Read "The Book". I love you. Denise
Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
Katie, Allison, and Jennifer- my heart goes out to all of you at this time of loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Just knowing that Richard has gone home to be with his heavenly father is an encouragement to all of us.
In Christian love, Helen Latch
My sympathy to everyone in the family. I am thinking of you at this difficult time. I am confident that Rick's memories will bring you comfort and peace in the days ahead. With love,
Katie, Allison , Jennifer and all family members, you are in our prayers. From the onset of his diagnosis to his dying moment, Katie, you and the girls taught us how to live and die as children of God, knowing this earth is not our home. What an example Richard was to all of us. By faith, we rejoice in the hope of heaven he prepared himself for, long before he became ill. Along with you, we sorrow not as those who have no hope. I Thess. 4: 13-18
I WAS SO SORRY TO LEARN OF RICK'S PASSING. I AM SO GLAD WE GOT TO GO ON A BONE FISHING TRIP TO THE BAHAMAS TOGETHER. THE TRIP IS ONE OF THE HIGH POINTS IN MY LIFE. WE BOTH ENJOYED IT IMMENSELY. I HAVE FIBROMYALGIA AND AT TIMES THE PAIN IS SO GREAT THAT I HAVE LAIN IN BED AND PRAYED TO DIE. I SOMETIMES WONDER WHAT GOD HAS IN MIND? RICK WAS MORE THAN MY ACCOUNTANT HE WAS MY FRIEND.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Katie, Allison, Jennifer, Denise, Stephanie, Dan, Brittany, and Jamie, you are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. I'm glad the suffering is over for Rick, although I know he hated to leave you behind, especially Katie and his girls. I know you have lots of wonderful memories and God's comfort to sustain you until you see him again.
