Hey guys,, a fellow fisher and close friend of mine had a heart attack and under went heart surgery today..

Big Rick, whom took my boy and I out of Orange Beach and has fished with us for a long time out of Apalachicola Fla, went in the hospital this morning... Rick's a good man and I wish/pray for the best for him and hope he pulls thru on his recovery.

My thoughts and prayers for you Rick and the Stacey family.

Prayers sent Dave.

Father, I come and ask that your hand would be upon Big Rick as I pray. That your healing power would touch him right now from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet. As the doctors that Rick is in the care of perform the tasks to aid in Rick's healing steady their hands and give them wisdom to do what needs to be done. Father and Lord Jesus I know that it is your will to bring healing and for Rick to have many more days of tight lines and in that we put our hope and trust. Thank you Lord for what you are already doing to get Rick back on the water quickly!
In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Oh man...Rick is a really good guy. I met him a few years ago at the infamous Dauphin Island tourney and always remembered him as a happy and cheerful person. He always had a good story to tell. He's a generous and thoughtful man...the world is definately a better place with him in it.

You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. My mother in law is also in critical shape. My wife and I have driven up to Maryland four times in the past three weeks. Sometimes positive things come from hard times because we become stronger and people come together to help one another. Keep up the spirit!

I am really sorry about the misses' grandmother. I will be thinking of her and praying for comfort and safe travel. I will also be praying that you and the boys won't let her come home to a big mess to have to clean up!

Al,, thanx for asking... it's been busy here lately and I havent had too much time to post.

I talked to Rick Friday, he's doing well, he's released from the hospital and back home. They did an angeoplasti (sp?), so he's a bit down energy wise, but doing good. That's great news! I havent talked to him today, as I had to juggle some stuff while my wife is up north (attended her grandmothers funeral today).

Everyone,, many thanx for your thoughts and prayers for family and friends.
