Very sorry about Rick. I've known him since I was a little kid as he was my brother Pat's friend. He was always friendly and good to me, showing me how to do some weightlifting. Good and funny memories of growing up in my neighborhood observing my brother and Rick and friends. I had many fun times jogging , swimming, going to movies and out to eat with Rick. I especially enjoyed our conversations on many subjects. My wife Nancy really liked Rick too as he came to or house many times and she knew I liked Rick. I regret not being able to attend the funeral as we live in Tennessee now and don't want to travel with the winter storm. I think about him often with funny memories. He is in Nancy and my prayers. May God Bless and rest his soul.
