    Rick, a long time member of this site and trapshooting community, has been enduring a battle with cancer for awhile. Rick has kept us posted on his condition and how he has been doing.
    He went home from the hospital today after the doctors told him there was nothing more they could do for him.
    Rick is at peace with God and himself. When someone is face-to-face with a situation like this, there is still someone who can intervene when it seems like all hope is lost. My prayers go out to you buddy, hoping that God will take care of you in every way, and give you His peace which will comfort you.
    On a small sidenote...I met Rick a few years ago at a large shoot held in Danbury, CT. I got lucky and tied Rick with 100 in the singles. We shot off at the end of the shoot till about dark, and ran out of ammo. Co-Champs! I've been shooting for close to 50years, and Rick is one of the toughest shooters I've ever had the pleasure to shoot against. Let's send some prayers Rick's way!
    God Bless you Buddy!Jeff

    Rick was one of the first guys with whom I shot, and has been a good friend ever since. Thanks for providing the gloves, the advice, the background, and the friendship. Our hearts are all singing for you. I know you will remain with us one way or the other.

    Luv ya.

    Our Father, which art in heaven,
    hallowed be thy name;
    thy kingdom come;
    thy will be done,
    in earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive them that trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation;
    but deliver us from evil.
    [For thine is the kingdom,
    the power, and the glory,
    for ever and ever.]
    Amen.

    Rick has a strong wife with a beautiful soul who has always been by his side. Rick's family is rallying around him as we speak. He is definitely blessed with love.

    He can't see the threads but he had me read them to him. He really likes what everyone is writing to him on both threads. Keep it going.

    With great sorrow I read this. Never met Rick but I have kept up with his fight for a good while. Its obvious from comments here he has lived his life well. Who and what we are is the most important thing in life. Good job Rick....my prayers are extended to you and my hope is what ever is best for you may be God's will. Chris

    Rick and I find ourselves at opposite ends of this great country but we've chatted a few times on the forum. I always respected his comments and appreciated his personal touch. I regret never meeting in person and never meeting on the trap field to slay some evil clay birds. Our thoughts will continue during his battle......Bob Dodd

    My prayers go out to you Rick and your family. Keep your family close and the memories you want them all to remember. Hopefully you'll ALL be laughing about them when you get together again next year.

    Never met Rick, but I have enjoyed his banter here, and his wisdom. My family's prayers are with him and his family through these times.

    I've never met Rick, but I've spoke to him on the phone a couple of times. Obviously a VERY stand up guy.

    Almighty and Eternal God,
    You are the everlasting health of those who believe in You.
    Hear us for Your sick servant Rick
    for whom we implore the aid of Your tender mercy,
    that being restored to bodily health,
    he may give thanks to You in Your Church.
    Through Christ our Lord.
