I know I never meet you and you’ve never meet me but I meet Rick several years ago and he quickly became my favorite customer and friend. He not only had the kindest eyes and big smile but when he walked through the door he lit up the room and I was always excited and happy to see him. We later found out in casual conversation that he graduated with my uncle (Dan Sauter) and he had many great memories with my family and recanted many great stories of my Grandmother (Ruthada) small world right! When I heard of his passing I was deeply saddened as he was truly an amazing man and kind soul . I hope in these difficult times it helps you to hear that he touched the hearts and souls of the people who got the chance to meet him, he brought a light not just to my world but the world of many many others.
