I was shocked and very saddened by the news of Dr. Rick's passing. I still think about it very often. I wish I had gotten to know him better, but in the short time I knew him, he touched my life as he did so many others' lives. He will forever be in our hearts as we each carry a little piece of him with us. I feel so blessed that I got to speak to him recently about his

Kathy and Christy, I was so heart broken to hear of Dr. Gallahers passing. I'm not sure if you even remember me, I did some temp Hygiene work in the office last year. Your office was always one of my favorite places to work, everyone was so nice. My prayers are with you.

Kathy, Christy, Zack, et al, We were just speaking of your father yesterday and saying how exited we were to have him continue to provide care for our two new little ones (the youngest born just 2 weeks ago) as he has for us. You have a wonderful father, as you know. God Bless and you're in our prayers. Richard, Sondra, John, Fisher and Faith Taylor.

I was both shocked and saddened by Rick's passing. My deepest condolences to his wife Kathy, son Zack and all his family and loved ones. Rick was one of a kind. An easy going, level headed compassionate man. I loved him and wish very much I had been able to spend more time with him. Rest in peace, my dear brother.

Kathy and Christy, We were out of town and only learned of Rick's untimely death when we returned home Thursday and listened to a voice mail about changing Bill's dental appointment! We were terribly shocked and saddened and even now have a hard time believing it's true!!! Rick was an exceptionally kind, courteous, thoughtful, and competent man, and he will be sorely missed in his Knoxville dental practice as well as in Baneberry! You are both very much in our prayers and in our hearts as you grieve this tremendous loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Rick was a wonderful man! Even after almost ten years he still made my day by calling me "Kiddo". If you ever need anything please let me know. Again my deepest condolences. . .

Kathy, You can be sure that we are praying for you and your family as you face the days ahead without Rick. You know how very much we love you. We are only a phone call away or 300 miles. Tom and Peggy
