To  Rick's  family I was so sorry to hear about this. We are cousins and  his dad Uncle Hassel and my mom were very close as brother and sister.  I was with his sister more when we were children but Rick and I had some good laughs when I was visiting his mom before she passed. My hope and prayer is he found peace with God and is now with his dad and mom. Love you buddy
