  5. This man was a hero. A caring, selfless, compassionate man and brother in arms. He cared deeply for his sisters and their children and was a kind and giving soul to those he loved. He would want his family to be strong as hard as it may be. That’s the kind of guy he was. I’ll cherish the memory of Rick and I am a better man having known him. Godspeed brother HUAH
