You are missed greatly and we will never forget you and all the wonderful memories we have shared with you. We definitely get to experience a little bit of you everyday with JosePhillip around he has so many of your personality traits it unbelievable.

Happy Birthday Dad. I will never stop missing you and all the love and fatherly support you gave me. You still continue to be my number one role model, not only as a father but as a true Man of God! You have blessed me with your love and caring heart throughout my life and your worship leadership anointing has been placed upon my head and I always vision you with me when I lead worship. Were still a team on that stage playing for God and I love taking what you taught me and using the gift of music to usher in the Holy Presence where you rest. I'll miss you until we meet again in Heaven.
Your Only Son,
Rick Jr.

Hey Dad...sure do miss you, your counsel, your insight, and your way of seeing things. How you have shown me the amount of value others do being with them when doing a work for our LORD. I look forward to seeing you one day soon when we are called home.
Love ya dad...

As we approach the one year anniversary of the day you went home to be with our Jesus, words still cannot describe how much I miss you everyday. You have been not only my Father, but my role model and best friend; that's what you always told me ever since I was a little guy and I knew you meant it by the way you treated me. I was first your student as you thought me how to play drums and then your partner on stage leading people into worship and now I continue in your legacy. Although you are now in heaven, I can still feel your spirit with me all the time and your words of loving advice will continue to be a guide in my life. I miss you and one day we will reunite in heaven but until then I will keep Mom and the family safe. Love your son,

Rick Jr.

Dad I miss you so much. I wish I could just call you up and talk to you about all that's bothering me. I really miss having you as a source of strength when times are tough . You always had the right things to say and make me think about things in ways I never would have thought of on my own. I will miss you forever and I will look forward to when we meet again. I love you Dad we will never forget you we all miss you so much our hearts still ache when we think of you being gone but we know you are in a better place.
We Love You Love Kris and the Family

Lisa and kids: Thinking of you all and know that even though we dont see each other often, you are all on my mind. I thought of my compa on September 2nd, his birthday, and I shared with you all about my being lost and finding Armijo Street in Monrovia!!!! who knew!!! Love you guys!!!!!
November 21, 2012
Lisa and Family, the news came as a shock to me, I am still trying to come to terms that I will never get another silly, spiritual, and loving email from my wonderful cousin Rick. But as I sat and cried Rick's voice softly spoke and said to me "don't cry Cuz, I just met Jesus" it was then I knew his dream had come true. WOW what a blessing! Rick expressed on many occasion how much he loved his family; all of you meant the world to him, and Lisa, you gave him all the riches any man could wish for on this earth. My heart goes out to each and every one who's life he touched with the words of our Lord and I will miss him very much. We grew up side by side in North Denver and he will always hold a very special place in my heart. My family: Dad & Dorothy, Zeke and John, send their condolances as well. I am a phone call away should you ever need a shoulder to lean on. Blessing Always Rosie

Dear Lisa, Ana, Margie,Rick, Kris,Anna and Grandchildren, what a blessing it was to know Rick. My heart is broken knowing the loss you all are suffering. His life celebration was such a blessing and a testimony to a man that loved not only the Lord, but his precious family. You are in my prayers and I am here if you ever need anything. Love, Jason, Micki and Jonathan.

Big Rick, I thank you for all the great memories. The thought of you and your son Rick Jr not sharing a stage again in this lifetime will always be bittersweet, but oh the reunion to come that fine day! I know your hand will always be guiding your son and our family to follow your strong drum beat for Jesus Christ. You mean so much to us, more than words can say and our time together was too short. See you in heaven.

Grandpa you and grandma have taught me so much about God and Jesus in your bible study days. I will do my best to grow into a man of Jeses. I am so very saddend about your death but I know you are playing music in the heavenly band and having a good time up in the kingdom of God. I will greatly miss you for the rest of my life. I promise grandpa that me and my brother will help grandma take care of the garden & yard.

It was a pleasure to know you Rick for the short time we were together. I will miss our worship leading conversations. You were a great Godly man and heck of a hard worker.
