Shamblin, Richard R.
27 April 1954 - 13 December 2010
My Rick was the most loving compassionate, caring person you could meet, he was my soul mate, my best friend. He always helped those in need, loved his Harleys, always rode in all the charity runs, He actually saved my life when I met him, yet I was unable to save his. That guilt will be with me for the rest of my life. He had a horrible childhood raised by a surgeon father who could not see past his God syndrome enough to show his children love and a mother who could think of nothing but keeping up the "family" name.. He could not get past his childhood, was always looking for love, acceptance and validation from his father, something that was never going to come, Rick gave up his early retirement plans to travel the states to move back to Alabama to care for his aging parents, nothing he did was ever good enough for his father. I hope he is finally at peace... if anyone deserves to be in God's loving arms, it is my Rick Rick....
