So sorry to hear of Ricks passing. I have fond memories of working with Rick at Harvey's Oil. A gentleman and true professional to say the least.
I know cherished memories will replace these sad days.

Condolence: So saddened to hear that Richard passed away. We will always remember his captivating and fun-loving personality and his many visits to our home in Heart's Delight. He was truly a great person from a great family. The Stanleys were - and always will be - an extension of our Bishop family, with so many fond memories that still bring a smile to our hearts; and now a tear to our eyes at this great loss.
He will live in our hearts forever!
Much love from your entire Bishop family...xo

Condolence: Rick and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time.

You look back on memories you forgot you had,
And at times you'll smile even though it hurts so bad.

Your Father is a special man, no one can take his place,
You'll find a piece of mind when you remember his smiling face.

Your Father is an angel now, he flies high above the rest,
In your hearts, always and forever, he will always be the best.

He has earned his wings and it's time for him to fly,
I know it hurts; no one is ever ready to say good-bye.

He knows you do not understand and that you cry at night,
But as you finally drift off to sleep let his memory hold you tight.

He will be your guardian angel through the rest of your life,
Helping lead you on the path between what is wrong and right.

Your Father loves you so very much and his love will always remain true.
Please don't ever think for a second that your Father will forget you.

A Father’s love is like no other in the whole world,
he has the most wonderful memories of his little boy’s and girl’s.

He has taken them with him as he's flown away,
Up to Heaven free of pain which is his new home to stay.

So although you cannot see him and you wish he could be there,
Your Father can always hear you and your Father will always care.

A Father does not forget the two greatest loves of his life,
And he loved nothing more than being your Father, and your Mother’s Husband.

He is so proud of his family and that's in his heart to stay.
Even though he's and angel and has had to fly away.

So as you cry your tears remember your Father’s love,
Being sent to you from him, from the beautiful Heaven above.

He will be there through your good times, he will be there through your bad,
he'll be there when you are happy, he'll be there when your sad.

Your Father has become an angel now, it is his time to fly,
And you will never know how bad it hurt to watch you have to say good-bye.
