    Praying for your family. So very sorry for your loss. I know Rick such a hard struggle in life especially the last few years and months. May he rest in total peace now.

    Your family is in our prayers. We always enjoyed cheering for the boys’ baseball teams with Mr. French. He was a very sweet man & we are thankful that we got to know him through Todd, Amanda & Logan.
