The memories that will remain in my heart and mind forever are the never ending, long, wonderful telephone conversations with Gina throughout the years and hearing Rick in the background making some funny off the cuff comment... and then hearing Gina say .... RICHARD!!! He was special and the go to Man with questions about ANYTHING! - even helping to identify the type of skunk that bombed my house for days with the most horrible stench! A kind, giving and gentle man who had just a darn cute personality! You will be missed terribly , Godspeed Rick - you go with peace and much love . It’s ok if you go at “ Farmer’s Speed” you will be in our hearts and memories forever. Love to Gina, Aubree, Braylan, Jordan and Brett and everyone who is struggling with this loss . Sending love and strength during this time.
