    Damn Rick, I used to consider myself one heck of a dad, I clearly pale in comparison. Very, very cool story of a father's love for his daughter. That's what the Chive's all about. Well done, sir. Well done.

    Chive, that was pretty cool. Make me take time to think.

    I hope I can be as good of a Dad as Rick (ironically my Dad's name as well, and he was an awesome dad, too). Chive On!

    Team Hoyt was the first I know if to do this. Check it out if you get a chance. These stories are amazing.

    Rick is an awesome dad no doubt but his daughter is the real hero here giving him the incentive to go and live life to the fullest. Inspiring others to be greater than they were is a gift not many people have and one Rick's daughter has put to good use. We could use more like her on this planet to help us all improve ourselves and our world.

    THIS guy serves as a model for all humanity. I am speechless…and inspired. May GOD in HEAVEN bless you and your family FOREVER. You are AWESOME beyond words.

  • Sheep_Dog30
