Gina- I'm so, so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. You are very much in my thoughts during this difficult time.
Dear Pauline, Sue & Charlie, So very sadden to hear of Rick's passing, We did not know he was ill. Our hearts go out to you & to Gina & Tony. Please know that you have been in our thoughts & prayers. God bless you.
Dear Gina and Mrs. Helias,
I am so saddened to hear that Rick passed away. My deepest condolences to you and your families. My mom called to tell me because she knew how fond I have always been of Rick. I'm glad to have met you, Gina, and see how happy Rick was with you and your terrific son, Tony. He was a very proud father.
There were so many good times at the Helias kitchen table down on Elm(?)St., laughing until it hurt, and always made welcome by Pauline. That continued when he was in the Navy and visiting me in Tucson before moving there. He is one of the people I always looked for when visiting VT. As others have mentioned, Rick had a contageous smile, one that will be deeply missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Sincerly, Sherry Fielding
Dear Gina- I am so very sad to read of Rick's passing. With all the folks I've worked with over all these years he is one of my favorite. I can still recall his laugh and how he could brighten a day with his cheerful and bubbly manor.You and Tony are in my thoughts and prayers.
Gina, Tony, Aunt Pauline, Sue and Charlie - there are no words that can be said to ease your pain. Please know that we are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. Rick was a great man and we will miss his sense of humor and laughter. Love, Roger and Jean
