Not sure what to say?

Dear Jenifer and family, I am so saddened to learn of Rick's passing. We worked together at The Islander Newspaper for several years and I respected and admired him greatly. He was a top notch reporter, and a great person. I hope you find comfort knowing how much he loved and cherished you. My deepest sympathies for your loss. Rebecca Barnett.

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.

I offer my most sincere condolences on the death of Rick. I'm very sorry to learn of his passing. Rest in peace, friend. Rest in peace.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Rest peacefully Rick. May we meet again. I know you are looking over you new granddaughter from above

May you rest in peace and your perpetual life continue to shine.

Rest In Peace my friend. We will miss you and will always remember you.

Rick, we are so sorry that you left this world quickly and unexpectedly. We wish you lived longer and would be able to see your granddaughter growing. All our prayers with you. We are feeling lost. You were a great brother, uncle, and brother-in-law. You always will be in our memory. Thank you for all your kindness and attention. Elena, Kim, Norah
