Interesting Quotes By Guys Named Rick

BLOGGER'S NOTE:  I prepped this particular blog post a few months ago, but never posted it. There was a reason. Right after I finished putting this one together, I found out that an acquaintance of mine from church, whose name was Rick Walters, had taken a turn for the worst. He'd been hospitalized for the better part of six months at the time, and it seemed that his passing was imminent. Unfortunately, it was. Out of respect for Rick's family, I decided not to post a silly quotes post at that time. It seemed insensitive and unnecessary. Now that some time has passed, I decided to go ahead and post it. I hope Rick's family (if they read this) will understand that no disrespect or flippancy is intended by this post in the least. Rest in peace, Rick.  ~  JH
