Default Speedy & Full Recovery for Both

I hope they both have a speedy and full recovery. I had the pleasure of meeting Rick when purchasing his RV-4. Long story short - his is simply a fantastic guy! Truly inspirational in the RV community!

Thoughts & Prayers!

Default Update on Rick

I just got off the phone with Rick's daughter and they removed the breathing tube on Rick today He is breathing on his own and they have moved him out of ICU to the floor above. She also mentioned they took off his bandages today where the skin grafts were done

She said he was doing better but it is going to be a long road. When talking to Rick's wife Saturday she requested they need a lot of prayers for Rick. We need to pray hard for Rick and his family. Rick and his family are very religious and it is an honor to call Rick a dear friend.

Therefore, keep the prayers going. They are working but it is going to take some time.

Default Rick Gray

As a owner of one of Rick's creations, RV-6, I can attest to his craftsmanship and also his character. I am praying for a speedy recovery and God's blessings on his entire family. Keep going as you have a lot to live for. Harold Johnson
