Sending prayers with love to the Melton family.
Rick was a good man.
I have many loving, fun memories through the years with Rick (and his wonderful family) –
a relationship that began long ago in grade school.
Rick, Love surrounds you as we say good bye today and Love surrounds you Heaven and all eternity. You’re forever in my heart. Rest in peace, Rick.
Rest in peace.
I love you.
