My belated Condolences to the family, Sorry for your loss; May you be Comforted by the God of all Comfort and may the God of Comfort be with you the family of Rick Martin in all your distress... God will soon ease all your sorrows and pain that you are feeling right now.

Rick had such a glow around him all the time, he made those close happy. I felt sad when I heard of his passing and will always remember him for the good he did. I know he is missed by so many people and his spirit certainly remains. Nancy Kenner

I can't believe its been a year already. My prayers are with the Rico's family. Keep the memories alive.

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