Oh Rick, I’m so sorry to hear of your passing and may you Rest In Peace, no more pain or suffering. My fondest memory will be when we all went tubing down the river, you got out in the mud. You hopped up in the back of Johns fathers box truck and away we went. Next thing we know, your mooning the car behind us and your butt is filled with mud!!! I’m sure they thought it wasn’t mud! Lol those were the days! Fly high my friend
