My condolences to the Overton family and friend. It is a painful thing to lose a precious love one in death. Even Jesus wept when Lazarus died (John 11:35). Our Heavenly Father knows the pain you feel. He did not purpose his human family to get sick and die, but to live and enjoy life forever. This is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy that will be removed forever along with all pain and suffering__ 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” ”And no resident will say, “I am sick” (Isaiah 33:24). Notice his promise to awaken all those in the memorial tombs from asleep in death¬__ Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." What a delight it will be to see them again! Allow these words to keep comforting all of you.

Lani & Amy,
Words will never be able to express not only my deepest sympathy but also my gratitude for the trust placed in me by both of you as well as Ric. The short time I had to get to know him was such a blessing to me and I will cherish the memories I have. I already miss the laughs and my "love" notes as I like to called them. But I know that he is resting in the arms of Jesus and at peace. Thank you again for being a blessing to me. To Ric... Go rest high on that mountain my brother. You will be missed by many. I find comfort in knowing that through the blood of Christ, we will meet again!

My deepest sympathies to the family. Richard was a treasured member of our work family and is sorely missed.В  Ecclesiastes3:1-4В  " For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die.."В  We know God has his own timeline, but it feels much to short for us.В  Rest in peace my friend.

Praying God wraps you in his loving arms of comfort during the loss of your loved one. Ric was a very special man who enjoyed life and making others laugh. He could always brighten my gloomy days. His first response was, " you want some Krystals and a chocolate milk shake?" And of course the answer was always, " yes. " We always had fun no matter what auction we were working. Your free of pain sweet man. RIP and fly high on that mountain.В  Lisa Evans Dekle and Family

I called him Tiny... In the mid 1970sВ  his dad Richard and my mom Anne married and created the yours/mine/ours thing with a baby sister we nicknamed "Pattipoo".В  We were immediately brothers and sisters and never gave a thought to "step".. or "half"... just loved one another. WE miss you Tiny.. my brother... Godspeed!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I worked with Richard many years ago at Anderson-Little in Peachtree Mall. He was a great guy, great personality and had an awesome sense of humor. I'm sorry to hear of his passing. I wish his loved ones peace at this time.

My heart goes out to Rick' s family. I had the joy of working with him when he worked for my Daddy's auction company. He was a caring person and full of life and could always brighten your day when you were down. Fly high Rick and I hope all can have peace knowing you are with our Lord and Savior now.

To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. May the God of comfort and tender mercies sustain you during this most difficult time.В 
(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May you find comfort in the hope of the resurrection found in the Scriptures at John 5:28,29 where Jesus promised that there's going to be a resurrection of all those in the grave and they will hear his voice and come out.В
