You people appaul me! These children have lost their parents! This is a tragedy regardless of ANY circumstances surrounding it and for you RDO to post that knowing that one of their children could be reading it...shame on you!!! Must be nice to live in a glass house! Fact remains..no one but these two know what happened. No one but them and GOD were there and I pray whole-heartedly for their families! I knew them and their children! They were wonderful people! Keep your opinions to yourselves and offer supportive words if anything!

Dedicated to my friend Lori

Angels

Lori, angels escorted you home
As you kneel at the savior’s feet
Embraced by his empowering love
Surrounded by loved ones you greet.
Lori, you were a true friend, always helpful, patient and kind
A wonderful mother to the four angels you left behind.
You will be greatly missed; no one can take your place
You will be watching over them as the years go by,
As they see a beautiful rainbow you have painted for them in the sky.
And in due time, the love, the embraces, oh how sublime.
As for now, Dear Lori, with the angels you will reside
Until we meet again my friend,
I love you.

I was a good friend to Lori. Amen, we all need to just show both sides of the family Love and support as Mother Teresa said if you judge people you cannot love them! Please everyone be compassionate to both sides of the family they are deeply hurting God Bless them and give peace unto them. Just think how you would feel if this was your brother or son? The other comment posted by a family friend is right we just need to be supportive of those children. Lori was one of the most loving and giving people I know.She needs our caring and compassion for her family's sake.

These families need compassion at this time. Yes, what Scott did is beyond understanding. They had young children and they are the ones that need to be thought of. I can't imagine how the families are dealing with this. Please, think of the children. They are innocent in everything about this. As precious and young human beings, with hearts that are broken, at this time, they need the love they deserve.

People can say what they want to say or think what they want to think, but the kids know that their mom and dad loved eachother and it wasn't "selfishisness" it was "love" so please stop with the rude comments and let the kids remember their parents as kind loving and caring people!

You know you can judge all you want but when it comes down to it it is a tragic thing that happend and nobody will no why it happend or even the full story you can say those things and start rumors and hard feelings about it but point blank those 4 amazingly beautiful children are left in this world of hateful people like yourself who say things to bring back those hurtful memories and the wrong that is going on in the world they are going to have to endure without the love of there parents physically and only spiritually... If you think you are any bigger of a person to be saying the things that you are about these two people you are wrong and will pay the consequence of God when it comes to judgement for you to buddy so maybe you should think before you speak.... The only one besides the possible children for the family you are hurting is yourself.... And one day the tables will be turned and you will have to deal with something like this and get the same responses back as these children have... Carma is a bitch buddy and sadly I hope you learn that the hard way with the comment you just posted... You never know what could happen to your wife and kids and when your final goodbye is around the corner so charish it because if you float this boat down the road I will make sure I am the first to comment on your page and say the same thing you have to this family....

Lori you will be greatly missed and the trials are now left in gods hands... But please look over your wonderful and amazing children in this time of need for them and don't let them absorb the shit talk like this they need you and scott and that is all that matters the facts are history and whatever happend is now left in the hands of god.... We miss you Lori and you will be greatly missed by all of us here in Richfield... We love you kids ( I would put names but feel it may be unappropriate at this time) Dont listen to things like this all that matters is the 4 of you still have eachother and the love of your parents will never dissappear... stay strong in the Lord and the Lord will show you the way he wants you to go and the great plan he has in store for you.... You know Richfield Residents are here for you 100% and you know the remaining family will do everything in there power to keep you together and happy.... I LOVE YOU RICKENBACH FAMILY...... RIP Scott and Lori

It is with the deepest sadness that I have lost my brother. Scott was my baby brother and I have loved him from the first time I held him in my arms. There was only one Scott Rickenbach so unless you were one of the few people who really knew Scott, your comments are unfounded. There was no man that was more honest and worked harder and with more integrity to build a life for his wife and family than Scott. From the day he met Lori, she was the center of his life. The love they shared was like nothing I had ever seen before. They created four truly beautiful children and they devoted their lives to building a truly loving family. You really had to know the Rickenbach's to understand the bond they shared. Those of us that were close to Scott and Lori understand the events and emotions that led to this unimaginable tragedgy. Close friends knew that Scott was struggling to hold on to his family and the life he had worked so hard to make for Lori and the kids. Many that were close to Scott knew he was deeply distraught and had tried to assure him that all things would work themselves out. None of us could have known the depth of despair that would lead to such an end. No one knows what happened that morning and will always be left wondering how this could be. In spite of all of the comments, there was no history of drugs or alcohol or any incidents of violence in their relationship or with thier children. Those of us that knew and loved Scott know that God is holding he and Lori in his arms and asking them to hold on to each other and the love they shared for their family and watch over these amazing children as they find a way to fillthe heartache of this tragedy. I LOVE YOU SCOTT and will treasure all that you meant to me in my life and keep your memory alive with your kids. They talk about you every day and ask how they can live without their dad. We will always remember the good times and hear your voice guiding us along the way. LOVE YOU
