I am most grateful to have had Rick in my life as my big brother. He has and always will be forever in my heart and memories. Thank you for coming to see me here in Reedsport in August. I have not laughed that hard and had that much fun for a very, very long time. I will forever keep that special time in my mind and soul. Thank you Dixie for being his true soulmate. You were the best that ever happened to him and I will always consider you a sister in every sense of the word. My love and condolences to you and your family. God Bless you and I know that we will see Rick again.

I will forever be "Daddy´s Best Boy" as inscribed on my locket. He gave me a gold Susan B. Anthony coin encased in glass pendant necklace when I graduated from high school. He told me he knew I had her courage and go into the world and make a difference like she did. Those around me say I do make a difference. I know he was so proud of me whether I heard it or not. He definitely gave me the gift of stories and never meeting a stranger. I use these gifts to share the love of Christ which he told me he was glad I had. I love you, Dixie. I will always be here for you, just a story away! oxoxox His Andi
