My wife and I enjoyed the short time we knew Rick. He was the kind of person that you would meet and he would make you feel that you knew him for years. He will be missed and may he R.I.P. May God give comfort to his family and his memory live on

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. "Think of him as faring on, as dear In the love of There, as the love of Here. Think of Him still as the same. I say, He is not gone- he is just away"

Mr. Jope, Sir, as a fellow Marine I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USMC. It was the history and accomplishments made by you and your fellow Marines of the "Old Corps" back then that all us Marines who have followed in your footsteps have always tried to live up to. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. Semper Fi Devil Dog! Mike Casey USMC `85-`89

Rick and I shared fifty years of married life. Rick was a kind, caring and loving man. He gave me a wonderful life and I am so thankful to have had him to love. He was my everything. I am sure all who have known him will have fond memories. Thank you God for bringing Rick into my life.
