Dear Rick

Dear Rick, dear Rick...

A loyal friend, you never let us down, but you are leaving much too soon.  It's been a long road and your journey has been nothing short of stunning.  As you round this next bend, we stop in our tracks and think intently of you.  In your last entry you wrote 

 ...And you see a little light at the end of the tunnel. It's not very bright yet, but it's there, a sign of hope that maybe sometime soon, the thought of being won't be a curse.

The light gets brighter.
I hope it's not a train.

Even in your hardest moments, you manage to laugh.  May the light continue to brighten, my dear friend.  And may the thought of being finally fulfill your wildest dreams.


  1. This is beautiful.

  2. This is so beautiful. Tears ... falling like rain.
