Mr. Casares had a great career and a blessed long life. I know the family and friends will miss him greatly. We all look forward to the time when death will be no more as mention at Revelation 3:1-4. Until then may Mr. Casares sleep in peace.

I only knew “Good Old Number 35” Rick Casares in the background of my life, but what a role he played. I have a dear friend in Chicago who was a fellow traveler, business partner and best friend to Rick for the years of his playing days, and this old friend revels in the stories and memories of his and Rick's time together. He was very much saddened by Rick's passing, it was as if another element of his life and era had been plucked away, but inevitably it would lead to another story of their bonding and revelry. All is well with memories.

As a life-long Chicago Bears fan, I was able to connect correspond with Rick through his old Chicago friend, and have him sign a couple things (his autographed football card is one of my “good luck” rabbit foots I carry with me when the Bears have an important game). But my favorite piece is a glossy black and white photo, showing Rick and his old pal's mother – who helped Rick get into a business. It is inscribed, “To Pat, Those were the Days! Rick Casares '35' Chicago Bears.” I treasure that photo.

To the family, condolences from Chicago, his past to the present. We revel in the gift of his life. Richard Joseph Casares...Those Were the Days.

My Dad played football with Rick during the Golden Era at Fla.
My Dad was Red Mitchum.
I enjoyed seeing Rick every yr. at the football reunions at Plantation , Fla. He was always so, thoughtful and kind. He will be missed by many who, loved and knew him well.

What a life Mr. Casares lived. May the precious memories of the family and friend comfort you at this time. And remember, God is for us a refuge and strength, a help thie is there be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort at this time. Psalm 62:8

Sincerely, Dee

To my dear friend, Polly. Rick will be sorely missed by all, and I will miss our chats about the Bucs and the Rays. He always had time for a word with me. May he rest in peace, and may the peace of God be with you. Elaine Barnes
