Lindy and I are so thankful we were able to say goodbye to my Dad before he left this earth. In his last days, my Dad was a very gentle spirit, loved to tell stories of the old days and enjoyed seeing the beauty of the Carolinas. He taught me so much on how to be respectful and to have a deep-seated work ethic. He set an example of always being a man of his word and conviction. He let me know throughout my life how proud he was of me and I never doubted his love and devotion of me. And, what I do know without a doubt, is some day soon I will see him again as we meet up in Heaven with his favorite cup of black coffee.

Love, Rick and Lindy
