Friends have called and visited to give their condolences, your funeral service is over…. family has departed. Today is the beginning of gone forever. I wanted post this one last message to say goodbye.

I remember the great fun we had together as young marrieds and then our young families spent years and years of wonderful Christmas Eves and family gatherings together. While we were separated in later years by distance and growing families, I always knew you were there … a brother that was a good man… loyal, trustworthy and reliable … someone who valued my family and his own and showed that he cared.
We shared a deep love for animals. Family was important … you reached out for birthdays and holidays and called in good times and bad. And somehow we grew old. It is amazing how we think others will always be there … until the day that they are not. I will miss you very much. The memories of our childhood are now mine alone.

As I know you weren’t one that wanted a fuss … I leave this poem in your memory …one that you could have written yourself…..telling us not to grieve …. because you haven’t traveled far. Colleen

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Laureen - I don’t know if you remember me but since my maiden name is Lane, Rick and I often had lockers side by side and often stood in line next to one another. I enjoyed Rick’s quick wit and sense of humor. No doubt the world will miss an exceptionally nice and decent guy. I know the joy of having Rick by your side all these years will never dim. I am so sorry for your loss, Laureen. My heartfelt prayers are sent for you and the entire family.
