Dear Burkee Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3,4 states “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

Your Neighbor,

Janel

I loved Rick’s sense of humor which he amazingly was even able to exhibit at times during his last hospitalization. He especially liked corny jokes (think 3 stooges) and certain “funny noises” etc. I will always remember Rick and the “friendly flys” at the trailer. I occasionally tried to copy his uncanny ability to pick out that perfect flannel shirt and would fail miserably. Let’s face it, no one looked better in flannel than Rick. He welcomed me graciously into his family and always wanted to know how me and my family were doing (even my family in Minnesota). He was a great uncle to my children, loving brother of my wife, and a most cherished friend and brother-in-law to me. I already miss him so much but I know that he is heaven and that gives me great comfort. God’s blessings to Diane and family.

Most of my fun memories and adventures with Rick needed censoring so her are the shortened versions, leaving the rest to your imaginations: 1. The lost boat. 2. Hey Rick, Who is you new girlfriend?” 3. “Hey Jackie, can you grab me a cue off the wall? 4. Just go to sleep in the corner. 5. Keep it between the ditches knobshine!” 6. No, that ice looks plenty thick. 7. Let’s call it “The Growler. 8. That was not me! 9. Is a secret between Rick and, that will never get shared. 9. You can’t eat 3lbs of sauerkraut! 10. I will never share with anyone…
