A great husband, Jonann was the center of his life
A great father, Will was the star in his crown
A great student, he worked hard to grow
A great teacher, he loved to teach the Book of Job
A great pastor, taking care of the Father’s children
A great leader, people followed him as he followed the Lord
A great man, people saw his Christ like walk
A great Bible Scholar, his work was studious and fruitful

Rick touched you by his care
Encouraged you by his faith in Jesus
Guided you by his teaching of God’s Word
Strengthened you by his faith
Assured you by his faithfulness

His life was challenging and Jesus always shined through
His wife always by his side, she was his superstar
His son blessed him and was at the heart of his love

Father we loved Rick and we miss his presence
We wanted many more years with him and now he is with You
Help us to remember his teaching about You
His life for You

Rick wanted us to know You better and now he sees You face to face
Jonann and Will and all of us need Your healing
Lord give us strength, hear our tears
Rick we will see you soon
Thank you for teaching us about Jesus, we love you
