Dear Rick, I do not know you and have missed your posts ( I am a digital guy) but from all this expression of feeling for you I see you are a fine, warm and loving man. You have made many friends here and I daresay no enemies. I can see you made your wife a beautiful companion and I can only imagine how devoted she was to you for the total love and care you gave her. I am a total stranger and it is easy to see that. Your family and friends are blessed to have you.

Dear Rick,

I am very sad hearing about this. We never met. But every time I browsed these PW forums I was always looking forward to seeing your presence. Your kindness and wisdom shined through your posts. I am sure Barbara was like you in this regard. The earthly world lost a kind person, but the heaven gains an angel. My prayers are with you and your family.

Terribly sorry to read this news, Rick. You bring a lot of light to this forum, and I hope you will continue to do so.

May the memories of all your lovely time together bring you some measure of comfort in this dark time frown

My sincere condolences Rick: just read this! tired
As believers we know that a better life awaits those who have passed the test of life, as has certainly your dear wife Barbara.
Sad for those of us left behind but not necessarily for those who have moved on.
Easy words perhaps, but still the truth.
With deep respect and sympathy,
Norbert
