Ric,

You’ve been gone for 7 months now, but it just seems like yesterday that we were laughing and talking. I miss you greatly and not a day goes by that I don’t think about you. I still see us in Aruba on the beach, giving Carolyn a hard time about winning on the machines and having to pay for the cab ride back. You are in my dreams and I miss you.

Love always, Jody

Uncle Ric,

In your life you’ve done many great things and seen many great places. Now you will travel to the greatest place and do the greatest things. We look for you to watch over us and be OUR Guardian Angel.

As your family gave you strength in your last days, now you can give them strength from afar. Strength to go on and to know that your pain is gone. In your life you were loved, and even though you are gone, let your love keep showing in the moonlight and as the sun rises each day for eternity.

Love, Cori
