To: Tim & the entire Reffke family, I'm so sorry to have read of Rick's passing. I would have been at the funeral Friday to express my sincere sympathy to you and the Reffke family; but I did not read Thursday's newspaper until Sunday evening. I've often thought of all you Reffkes' and wondered how all of you were doing. Sorry it was such sad news that I heard. Know that you are in my prayers & thoughts! Take care!

Life is a puzzle with its pieces scattered all over. It is up to all of us to take the journey to find the pieces to complete the puzzle allowing us to see the big picture. In the end we will learn it is not the big picture that provided us with wisdom. In the end we will learn it was the journey to find the pieces to complete the puzzle that provided us with wisdom. God speed Rick My heart goes out to all of you.
