We wish all seniors and caregivers a “Spirit of Life”
full of respect, dignity, love, and joy.
The “Spirit of Life” motto is “Serving senior citizens with respect, dignity, love and joy.” My name is Pat Rico, and I created this website in honor of my parents, relatives and friends who have already lived through their senior years, as well as to those seniors who are presently facing challenges and issues.
My sister, Claire, and I learned from the example of our parents what it meant to “Honor thy Parents”. We saw first-hand as they each cared unconditionally for our grandparents.
Forever in our hearts.
Mary & Tom Rico
The “Spirit of Life” symbol.
The lotus flower starts as a small flower down at the bottom of a pond in the mud and muck. It slowly grows up towards the water’s surface continually moving towards the light. Once it comes to the surface of the water the lotus flower begins to blossom and turn into a beautiful flower.
Lotus as a flower symbolizes the journey and advancement of the soul through the realization of the material world to be one with the supreme soul of purity and divine birth. Because it has buds, blossoms and seed pods simultaneously on the same plant, it represents the past, present and future.
