To Rick Riggenbach:
How can you go from being here to never going back home? I don’t understand this … but I’m sure in time I will.
You would always pick on me and make me a bit angry and tell me to be sweet. Since I’ve met you, you taught me a very important lesson, “Always forgive, never hold a grudge, you don’t know where you’ll be tomorrow.” I can just hear you say it. You were like an uncle to me, embracing me with warm hugs followed by nuogies. When I would get scared at night and my pappa could never make it, you would always be glad to check in with me.
Always happy to help someone, so caring and always happy to help someone, so caring and always happy … I’ve never seen you unhappy or sad. You were a proud and brave officer. I knew you loved what you did. Thank you Rick, for always being there, for watching over us and continuing to do so. I’m glad you served alongside my pappa and I’m glad you came into our lives. Thank you Rick, for the time you spent with us.
