I saw you at the visitation and I neglected to give you condolences that I was asked to give from three friends who knew you and Rick and played music with you both, but could not make it to the services. Dave Robinson, Ron Ford, and Loren Richardson asked me to express their sympathies to you and your family for them. Rick was admired very much by all of us as a great musician and a great guy! He will be deeply missed by many good friends. You will all be in our prayers!

Dear Gail and Family, Although I didn't have the pleasure of knowing you Gail, Rick spoke of you often and all the fun times you had together. Rick was a crew chief in the department I worked in and he was such a kind person and a true gentleman. Always willing to help. He will be missed by so many. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. Sue and Howard Fields

Cris and i would like to express our condolences to you and your family. We both know losing a parent is so hard. God bless you and your family Cris and John Norred

Closing on the sale of Mt Olivet. A bittersweet time for Rick and Gail, but I was honored that I was able to share the time with them

There are few people you come in contact with, in the course of life, who you do not see for weeks, months or even years at a time but then when you see each other again, you don't miss a beat and pick up right where you left off, as if no time had passed since your last meeting; to me, and I am sure I speak for many, my uncle Rick was one of those people. I am so grateful to have had the honor of having him in my life and knowing that when I needed him he would drop what he was doing to...

My sympathy to you, Gail, and the rest of your family. Judy Frame
