  1. Rick was my partner in crime.. lol Best friend for over 20 yrs… Where you seen one of us, you seen the other… We traveled to other contenants around the world together… Was together for more adventures than you could imagine… Had our ups, and downs!! But was ALWAYS there for one another… This break’s my heart!! But thankfully!! We had the chance to see one another, after some yrs apart!! Rick was incarceration for over the last 8 yrs!! But when he got out, he was in a halfway house in Sevierville… And I went and picked him up, and we had dinner and had a chance to catch up!! The first thing he did when he got in the car, was take off his crossed necklace, and put it around my mirror of my car…. It has been there every since!!! Rick was a kind soul!! That endured many adversities in life!! And was tough as nails!! He will be dearly missed!! The last thing we had said to one another is that we loved each other, and gave each other a bro hug!!! RICK did have a strong relationship with the LORD!! THAT COMFORTS ME!!! LOVE YOU HOMIE!! R.I.H. AND ILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE!! HID BLESS YOU.. NO MORE PAIN, NO MORE HURT!!!
