  • We have been friends with Rick and Jan since approximately 2015 when we moved to the same neighborhood in Silver Springs FL.  Rick was a friend who was always available if we needed anything.  We took camping trips together and many good meals over the years.  They visited us in Virginia several times.  We will miss him and so sorry for his death.  May God watch over Janice during this time forward.
