I am sure his family has some bills that they could use some help with. Hard enough losing a family member this time of year (or anytime) but to be saddled with bills as well. Maybe a little ET Christmas Sprit for his family.

Metastatic cancer can be very quick, unfortunately. I had no idea, although I did notice he was not posting. RIP Rick, I always enjoyed your posts and pictures.

Not that its ever a good time to go, but what a crappy time of the year. Tired and had a crappy day. Brings things into perspective. Can always be worse. Thoughts go out to his family. Nice to be home with mine. Unfair.

I wonder if the "Go Fund Me" is still active? I didn't see anything on the page to say it's not. If it is, I guess we could give there.

Prayers for his wife and daughter!
