    Don and Roberta,

    I just read about Rick’s passing and want you to know how saddened this makes me feel for you both, and family. Rick was a great guy. A big heart and a kind soul which were always welcome. Have not seen Rick for over a decade but he is in my prayers as are you and your family.

    Thanks, Rick. You will be missed. God Bless. – Jason Hammond

    I was trying to find a telephone number for you, Roberta,
    and came upon the notice of your son’s death.

    My best thoughts are with you.
    You were always a good friend to me.

    I’ve been through losing a son, too.
    But you’ll make it.
    He’d want YOU to be HAPPY, not SAD.

    Best to you.
