I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm praying for you
My son, Dustin Jensen and I both had the privilege of working with Rick. Me at the Clarksville Nursing Home and Dustin at Haynes. He was our Ohio guy as Iâ€™m also from Ohio and would message me â€œIâ€™m going home what do you wantâ€. Heâ€™s such a wonderful caring man and I know Deby and the kids will always have the best memories to share. Iâ€™m so sorry for your loss. Many blessings to you Deby and the family.
