Sending condolences to all of you good people. My regrets to the passing of Rick. Time passes quickly but memories do not.  Growing up with 6 of us and 6 of you were the best! Visits to the hay barn at the stock yards, capture the flag through out the neighborhood, playing in the church yard till they sent us home and endless days at the 6th ward park!  We sure were hell raisers, and such fun, no care in the world.. We all feel lucky to have known him.
Mom Eady, Luann, Bob, Darlene, Linda, Fred, Steve Wentzel. (My Father Fred has passed to that cancer also!) Bless you.Always look up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is with a very heavy heart that I am sending my condolences to you. We have lost a truly wonderful person.  There won’t be a day that I won’t think of him.  We became close friends thru work and I will cherish that friendship forever.  My thought and prayers go out to you today.  He may be gone from this life, but he is in another place, Heaven, and he is happy with having met us…his FAMILY.  He will be in our hearts..FOREVER.

Sorry to hear about your loss my thoughts and prayers are with use.

Life brings tears,
smiles and memories.
The tears dry,
the smile fades,
but the memories live on forever.

There are no words to describe how sorry I am for your loss.

Please accept my condolences.
