Okay, so like many of you I have been trying to think of ways to help Rick and the family since I heard the news. Today I figured it out!
Rick is the most compassionate, kind and charitable person I know. Admittedly, I have often questioned some of Rick’s “endeavors.” He has helped so many selflessly. Rick has eagerly given his time, resources, money, work, effort, contacts, property, trust, and friendship; all without expectation. In turn he has also given us his health and valuable time away from his wife, children and grandchildren; all of which we’ve heard him dote on with such pride and infinite love. That spark of compassion that Rick has is rare and savored by many in this crazy world we all find ourselves living in.

NOW, IS OUR TIME TO HELP! At this point, it is moderate to expect Rick to be in the hospital and physical rehabilitation for at least a month or more. All the while the family is suffering the mental and emotional stress of the situation. Not to mention the financial stress, this is where we can help! The family is losing Rick’s income, plus income for lost wages for missed work, travel expenses, extended living expenses, meals, fuel, etc.
We all know that this is a lean time in our community but we ALWAYS without fail find ways to pull together and get our “extended family” through life’s hurdles. Not all of us can afford to help financially but we call all afford to spend time praying or helping where we can.
Suggestions for ways to repay Rick’s Kindness:
1. PRAYER- Include your friends, family, churches and study groups as we continue to pray for Rick and his family.
2. MONETARY DONATIONS- message me and I will advise.

3. GIFT CARDS- Anyone have a restaurant, gas, hotel or retail gift card that they could part with? It could make a big difference.
4. TIME- There will be yard maintenance, etc. that Linda could use help with moving forward. Message me.
5. SUGGESTIONS- If you have suggestions/ideas of fundraisers or resources that I could look into to ease the stress on the family DO TELL. Message me.
