Rick, we will greatly miss your delicious home cooked meals, (your meatball bombers were the BEST) the late night fires, listening to music and just hanging out together. We spent an entire summer with you, helping out around the house, trimming the bushes, even though that one time, I ended up in the ER room after stepping on a nail lol you were so sincerely concerned about me and that's what I always loved about you! You always made Steven and I feel like family! We will miss you greatly. I know you are happy and pain free, drinkin' a nice cold beer up in heaven. Much love, Sky and Steven, your future daughter and grandson in law.
