0 Tributes for “Richard Bates

    Rick was one of my most difficult and challenging patients as a nurse. At our first visit I literally got up and walked out of the room. But he kept bringing his ornery self back to his appointments and low and behold we became good friends. I remember a day that he laughed out loud because it caught me off guard. When he saw the look on my face he laughed even harder. I told him he never looked so good and a smile and a chuckle were never far away from that day on. Rick had a very special place in my heart and I will miss him. Please accept my condolences for your great loss.

    Jackie and Family-

    Distance prevents your extended family in Georgia from being with you when you say good bye to Rick.

    Frends often become our chosen family. You and yours are a part of ours. We share your tears and
    your loss.

    Rick was a joy to get to know at the family gatherings. He was such a special person.

    The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

    Keeping you close in thought and prayer-

    Dear Sandy and Family,

    I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Rick in this life! He helped me many times and was a good man. I will keep him and his family in my prayers! I only new him for the last 2 or 3 years but it seems like I knew him all my life!
