    In loving memory of my husband and my best friend for over 50 years. I am having a very hard time and miss him more than I can express. I have had a change in plans about his memorial. He had always expressed that cremation was what he wanted, but he neveral wanted any type of funeral service. He wanted to he cremated and then his ashes to be brought home and then have friends and relatives come to our home to help celebrate his life. I plan to have Rick’s ashes back to me by Wednesday. I know all of you have your holiday plans, but after holiday please all that wish to come by and celebrate and bring your stories and love about my wonderful husband into our home. I will post a later date after you all have had a chance to spend time with your families for Thanksgiving.

    Diane and Cooter I am so very sorry to hear about your loss! Rick was such a good man who loved his family so deeply. I always loved to hear his stories about how y’all met, all of your trip adventures, about his fur babies, and his time in Vietnam!
    I am praying for comfort and peace for you both during this very difficult time!🙏
