O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day our brother
Rick (Richard Holcombe). We thank you for giving him to us, his family
and friends, to know and to love as a companion on our earthly pilgrimage.
In your boundless compassion, console us who mourn. Give us faith to
see in death the gate of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may
continue our course on earth, until by your call, we are reunited with those
who have gone before; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more
hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
R.I.P. Richard Burges Holcombe 5/11/1949 - 8/22/2012
