Default My best friend passed yesterday.

Even though I knew several days ago that my buddy Rick was probably not going to make it, it still hasn't sunk in that he is gone. He passed peacefully yesterday surrounded by friends and family after the life support was removed. My youngest son took this picture of him at my place on Lake Sinclair Ga, after he landed that whopper of a bass!! Rest in peace buddy, I'll meet ya back at the fishin' hole!

Damn sorry to hear the news James.
I don't really have a best friend but I can imagine what it must feel like losing a pal that is a big part of your life.

Godspeed Rick
Scott

Thanks Scott. I'm pretty busted up about it. He and I had a lot of good times together, and he was dearly loved by my family. Like one of my other neighbor's said, he probably had the biggest heart of anyone I've ever known. The world is a lesser place without him.

His has a friendly, honest smile. Looks like someone I would be honored as a friend.

I don't think Rick ever met a stranger. One of the coolest and most trustworthy people I've ever known. You would be correct in your post.

James, I am very sorry to hear about your best friend Rick

I raise my favorite adult beverage to his memory as you described him as more than even a brother

Please accept and share my sincere condolences with his family and friends.

Jeff
