Rick, my heart breaks knowing you're gone, I don't want to accept that it's true. I have no words to describe the emptiness and the hole left in so many of our hearts. You truly were one of the most genuine, loving, caring, amazing men I have ever known. I am so grateful for every memory and every moment I was able to share with you....my regret is that there can never be more. I truly love you my dear friend.

My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of.Richard. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort through the loving and happy memories that you share and those that you keep close to your hearts. May you also look to our loving Heavenly Father, the GOD of all comfort, to provide what you need at this very sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4, Psalms 83:18). He promises us that very soon, "He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Revelation 21:3,4, Isaiah 33:24. He also promises us that there will be a resurrection of our loved ones that we have lost in death, and they will have the opportunity to live forever in perfect health in Paradise right here on earth. (John 5:28,29, Psalms 37:10,11). What wonderful promises! Can you imagine a time on earth when there will be no more sickness, pain or death? At that time, will have the opportunity to live life to the full with the prospect of everlasting life. May all of God's promises give you a measure of comfort, peace, hope and strength. I personally found very comforting information on jw.org. when I experienced the loss of my parents and siblings.
