Pray for our children - Angel McCoy Josh Mccoy Dessie Mccoy.
And for all those that Daddy claimed as his own.
Pray for our grandchildren.
And pray for me. I am facing a life unknown without my best friend.
I won't be speaking at my dads service simply because I just don't think I'll be able to form a word... But I do have some things to say so I wrote them here.
You were gone so suddenly that I didn't get to say anything, let alone goodbye. First of all I know you weren't always perfect but you are a great Daddy. You taught Josh and I so much by simply loving us, showing us, living day to day, praying and loving mama. You have the best sense of humor in the worl...d, and out of all the things I'm going to miss I'll miss your smile and laughter the most. I could list sweet memories and funny moments and words of wisdom all night long, but somehow I wish I had more. I wish I could go back somehow and memorize each thing you told me, each piece of advice, each funny story, each memory from your childhood you retold. I wish each bedtime prayer you said with me and each time you sang"Daddy's girl" and each time you shared with me what God had shown you and each time you walked Josh and I through putting on the whole armor was recorded and I could sit and watch and listen for hours if I wanted. My mind will have to do, and for all the memories I am so thankful! I am so grateful for the past few weeks here with you and mama. I'm grateful for the precious memories you've given my children of you in this time.
I guess what I most want to say is this: thank you. You're the best daddy I could've ever had, I am proud of you, and I LOVE you. No, you weren't perfect but you showed me the power of redemption. Yes, you made mistakes but you showed me it's OK to mess up as long as you learn, admit your wrong, ask forgiveness and move on. You and mama taught me about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Word. Your legacy is the faith that you and mama helped me to find, the love you have for each other and for us (and so many others) and of course... Laughter. I miss you Daddy.
Love for Always-
Your little girl, Mandy.
Joshua spoke at his daddy's memorial service. Talked about his daddy. Talked about his love for daddy. And he said that one day many years ago, he asked his daddy what daddy wanted said at his funeral. Rick's answer was simple - "Here lies an honest man." And because of the life that Rick lived for 55 years - Joshua was able with a pure heart, with simple words, and with all truth to say - "Here lies an honest man."
Then, Joshua said that he wanted to introduce everyone to someone who was there. Daddy's Boys ... and he called them, one by one, up on the stage with him. A line formed behind our son. A line of strong men. A small representation of Rick's life and his now legacy.
Daddy's boys ... not all of his boys were able to be there. Just want y'all to know that daddy loved you all with a passion. He believed in you. And he STILL does!!! So do I. I love you!
A tough day. I love you sweetheart! I miss you so much! I love you Rick!!! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡
In just 3 short hours (yet how can they feel like a lifetime? )... we will celebrate the life, the faith, the passio, and the love of the greatest man i have ever known. My sweetheart. My soulmate. My best friend. The one true love of my life. The one who could make me mad with just a look. The one who could make me giggle uncontrollably. The one who held me when i was scared. The one who calmed me when i was angry. I love you Rick! I always have and i always will. I miss you with every breath. I know you are in a better place. But oh for one more day! I love you!
How do i say thank you to so many for so much? WOW Y'ALL!
You have prayed and called and come. You have messaged and texted. You have listened and laughed and cried. You have held me tight and let me cry.
You have brought food and plates, drinks and cups. You have donated monies. You have sent beautiful plants and flowers. Thank you. I don't have the words to say it...
THANK YOU. I LOVE YOU!
Rick was honored. He is a blessed man.
... He always lived by FAITH, PASSION, LOVE. Go forward now, press on and live a life that honors his memory and our Lord.
Know this...Rick loved you. And so do I!
