I was looking for Rick on the Internet and saw where he passed away. I'm devastated to say the least. I wanted to let him know that a story he wrote about me long ago has sparked new interest all over the U.S. Rick was an amazing reporter. Beyond that, he was an amazing human being. I've never met anyone quite like Rick and I doubt I ever will again. The world has really lost someone irreplaceable here... Sending my deepest condolences to Rick's family.

I was so amazied at all the things Rick had done and all the lives he touched. Truly he was a role model for the rest of us to look for the good in people in life and a way to find peace in death.

Rick Moran was one of those men that once you meet him, you would never forget him!

He taught me so much about life, death, appropriate grieving tools for loved ones, about my gifts, paranormal investigating, and how to just enjoy your life whenever and while you can!

I will always love him as a dear friend and brother.

Rick will always live on as my mentor and my friend. I learned so much from him and will keep his vision and work alive.

In Rick's life he gave us a new perspective on death, in his passing, he gave us a new perspective on life.

Rick, you will be missed, but we know you are not far away.

When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You musn't tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love and you can only guess, how much you gave me happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, but it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must, then let your grief be comforted by trust. It's only for a while that we must part, so bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, as life goes on, so if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near, and if you listen with your heart, you'll hear all my love around you soft and clear.
And then, whenyou must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and say, "Welcome Home"

"I was so touched by your husband although I did not know him I felt your love and your loss when he passed. I felt a loss too for a friend I never meet but, felt like I knew because of all the great things you told me about him. May God be with you."
