If you were lucky enough to know Rick then you "already know". He was such a good person, so kind and willing to help others. He would give you the shirt off his back.
Rick had a certain aura or confidence about him, that when he was around you it felt like everything was going to be okay. Everyone loved him...from kids to ladies , he was the "favorite uncle", the life of the party, and an awesome father. He loved so many others like his own. The love Rick had for his grand-babies was undeniable. Never goodbye, but always see you again.
