I am so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. He is my first cousin. I had just discovered him on Facebook a few days ago. Rick is several years older than I am, but I have nothing but good memories of him, and how kind he always was to me. Rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. He was married to my cousin Lynda Keeney, and a good husband and father. Sincere sympathy to his mother, sons, grandchildren, and all his family and friends. I can remember how Lynda's mother, my Aunt Phyllis adored her grandsons and all the family. Blessings to you, Connie Stemmons and Family, Mt. Vernon, MO
