    I am very sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Rick from Minnehaha Academy. His bright smile cheered everyone up, along with his great tenor voice in Singers. God’s peace be with your family.

    Sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Growing up going to Nokomis Heights Lutheran Church and attending Minnehaha Academy Rick was always full of fun and interested in what and how you were doing. He shared his great voice singing at school and also with the church choir which was there to sing for our parents funerals. God Bless you and give you peace.

    Rick was my second cousin, and it was a pleasure to meet him when my husband and I visited Minnesota. I did not know any of my american family members before that trip of ours. Now we
    share your sorrow, and we regret that we did not meet him again. Best wishes from his family Thorkildsen in Norway, and from Matias Lunde. -Bjørg Hoel and Berit Hisdal Lunde, both 2.cousins.
