So sorry Peggy for your loss. He was the nicest person and loved by so many. I always enjoyed all our times together. So sorry we have not been together in a long time. Prayers and love to you and family.
Cousin Rick, you were so much a part of my young life. Each summer when mom and I came to Savannah from Oregon, you came and stayed with Auntie, your nana, for the whole summer. We had fun and did many things together through out all those years. You were so handsome and kind, everyone’s best friend! Each time I visited Savannah, you were always the first person I visited. Loved your wife Peggy, she was perfect for you and she so loved your children and their families. Always wanted you to come to Oregon, time just slipped away, rest with all our loved ones in heaven Rick. You are so loved and will be so missed by the ones you’ve left behind.
I love you, Ricky. Rest in Peace. Love, Sister
So sorry for your loss Peggy and the rest of y’all’s family. I’ve missed not seeing y’all for all these years but I guess we just grew apart. Paul was such a good genuine man, he helped me transition to Savannah so many years ago and he will be missed by many!
Rick was such a sweet and kind person. I remember when we were out together and you met him all those years ago. I am sorry we missed the service but I kept looking for it in the Savannah News, just found ths today. I will keep you and the family in my prayers. What a life of memories you have and God’s love to help you go forward. Love, Janet
