Not sure what to say?

RIP Rick dug our basement and did a lot of ground work in 2020, We are so sad to hear this. Nelson and I both also worked wit him at BFN plant. We both loved Rick and hate we did not know about his death until this week. Prayers and condolences to his family. Nelson and Arlene Richardson

Ray and I are heart broken to hear that Slick has passed away. Slick was a special person, he could always make you laugh and he was always there when you needed a friend. He is a friend that we will love and miss always. May the Lord Bless and Comfort his family and friends and may he help us all to draw strength from our memories of Slick and the love Slick had for all of us.
