Terry, Bonnie, Matt and families, We were so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. While we never met him, Rose spoke of him often to us. (She is so proud of all of her kids and grandkids.) Our prayer at this time is for God to wrap his arms around all of you and comfort you as only he can. Please give Rose a big hug for us. In God's care in Arkansas, Neil and Regina
