Rick and I would love playing singles tennis against each other and I have lasting memories in my mind of the time we spent on the court together. Although on opposite sides of the net, we always came off the court completely exhausted but shaking hands and laughing and joking with each other. We also helped each other with tips. I will miss seeing my friend until the day I hope to see him again in the kingdom of heaven. Sure hope he is reserving a tennis court for the two of us. Blessings, Matthew
