My thoughts and prayer are with you all. I think back to all the wonderful times I have spent with the Rice family. David introduced me to football and baseball. He took us fishing over on the Fork and farm ponds. Our families have had many memorable moments at the lake and great times just hanging out at home. I always felt welcome to join Rice family get-together's and had fun on hay rides. I will forever cherish the neighbor, mentor, and friend David has been to me. I wish every man in this world had the heart of David, the world would be a much better place.

God Bless,

Ben Cooper
