I never got to meet Rick. After reading his letter to us gazers it brought tears to my eyes. It made me think of my life and how lucky I am to be given a second chance in life. I myself am lucky to be alive after having cancer 2 years ago. I was told if they had not found it I would not have lived more then 3 months.That was my wake up call. I see life different now. We all go through tough times and think we are the only ones going through a hard time. I always try and think I am better off then a lot of other people and my problems are small compared to others.
Rick left us a MESSAGE OF LOVE that we should all read and never forget. . Life is so short and we do not realize it. We all make mistakes in life, no body is perfect. From what I understand even though Rick was dying he had a kind word to everyone. I myself have had a wake up call after reading his MESSAGE to us. You never know what a gazers is going through in his or her life and to come in and play cards is where they can come to relax and get away from the problems they are having in their life. So if you see a gazer playing slow or having a bad day maybe all they need is a kind word or hug.
I thank you Laura for posting this it gave me something to think about.
