Mt. Kilimanjaro

In August of 2007, Rick lost his wife of 23 years, Denice, in a tragic car accident.  Two weeks later, he hiked to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, which, at nearly 20,000 feet, is the highest free-standing mountain in the world.  There, in a tribute to Denice, who had visited and loved the African continent, he scattered her ashes. Later, Rick returned to Rwanda for the dedication of a new building for the Imbabazi Children’s Orphanage (in the town of Gisenyi), part of which is named in Denice’s honor.
