I will remember Rick as a man who loved his family. I will never forget the places he brought us, the conventions, the car washes, and all the meetings he held. Thanks for all the great memories RickO. God bless you and your loved ones.

So sorry for your loss Barb and family. I didn't know Rick well or get the chance to but the time we talked and had at the picnic was enjoyable. I was looking forward to more picnics and talks but you were gone too soon and I didn't have any idea you were real sick. I'm glad we reconnected. My grandfather was Bert Olney. At least he's not suffering,he's in a better place now.
