Thank You Rick For Saving My Life!
16 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just wanted to say thank you Rick for releasing these films and recordings and allowing this to be created. Because if this film, it has changed my life and that of my family.

This film has saved my life and made sure that my two boys will have their father while they are growing up in this harsh world we live in, and has saved my marriage.

I wish there was more I could do or say so that you (Rick) would know just how much this means to me and my family, and that you could truly understand in your heart of hearts that you have helped to save a life... My life!

I trust that in some way, some how, God will bless you for having the courage to bring forth these films and recordings. I will keep you in my prayers.

Thank you Rick!

Patrick
