Some of my best childhood memories include my Uncle Rick. He made me laugh, taught me how to cook, and always made me feel like I was part of the Gebhart/Vanover family! He would even pick me up from school when I was sick if my parents couldn't. I know that Uncle Rick and Dad are going to cause some mischief in heaven. Lot's of love and prayers to my Aunt and cousins.

Deepest sympathy to all the family on this loss. One day at a time from here on. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Dear Family Rick and I were very close in our younger years. He would take a greyhound bus that stopped at Load, Ky. in the summer. Grandma Ersie Nichols and I would wait for the bus with great expectations for hours. After the bus dropped Rick off and hugged grandma Ersie, he and I would play and get into a lot of mischief along with my brothers Randy and Terry on the farm. He was a natural country boy raised in the city. Although we were just cousins, we became like brothers during those summer visits. May God bless Steve Miller, 220 W. Seminary St. Owenton, Ky. 40359 502-484-0777
