Rick was the heart and soul of La Boniche. He loved his customers and his customers loved him. A true gentleman who will be missed by all those who were privileged to know him. My sympathies to his family at his sad hour.
Dear Aunts and Uncles, Cousins and Friends, We will always remember Ricky. He was such a great person to have in our lives. We all will truly miss our Beloved Rick. Colleen, Micky & Emma.

Sorry, the post regarding Prince Grotto was From Ronnie
There were many years before LaBonich that you began to touch those you met. At the Prince Grotto, you made life long friends, and I'm glad I was one of them. I loved meeting you at your house, because I loved your mother so much, and she too always made me laugh. It warms my heart that you are with her now. It's those you left behind that hurt. But, you my friend, are with the your parents and siblings, and are now free of the struggles of life here on earth. I know for sure that God welcomed you into heaven, and now you're truly Home.
To the Pierce Family, my sincere sympathy for your loss. Ricky was such a gentleman, always cared about people, always gave the most attention and care to all he did. He was one of the fortunate people to find his calling - the people business was perfect for Ricky. He made everyone feel special. Everyone who knew Ricky was blessed to have known him and have him in our lives. I will miss his smile and sparkling eyes. God needed him home and he is wrapped in God's gentle loving arms.
I haven't seen you in years but I still remembered you how funny you were and that we have the same b'day... My prayers are with you and your family Rick....R.I.P.

To the Family of Richard Pierce,
I am shocked to hear of Ricky's passing. I just ran in to him in early March 2013 at Stop & Shop. We talked about the old days and had a few laughs. He seemed in good spirits and perfectly fine. I will always remember his laugh. My sincere condolence to your entire family. Rest in Peace. The Ntapalis Family of Lowell.
My family offers our sincere condolences. He was such a part of La Boniche, was always our waiter and was just a really nice person. We will remember him fondly.
The Swindells family
Dear Nona, Helen and the Pierce family, I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Rick. He was such a wonderful person. He always paid so much attention to me when I saw him at La Boniche. Friendly, kind and always smiling. You were so lucky to have him as a brother. May God hold him in the palm of His hand. God bless you all. Joanne and Paul Price
Ricky always made you feel so special. I'll never forget his fun and loving way. We had many good times. I will never forget his laugh and good nature. In my thoughts for life.
Ricky, this is a blast from the past, really way past. You were my first boyfriend. I remember getting caught by my parents as we were hiding on the courtyard steps, trying to get to the rialto! May you rest in peace, my friend. Thinking of your family right now. Niece you around? Remember the night we girls all got together at I think Joans house in Dracut?
Love, Deb Adams
Ricky's gentle and kind spirit stood out amongst the many people that I have met. He was a genuine loving person to a friend or stranger alike. His infectious laughter will be missed. May God keep you at peace and immersed in his everlasting love. Goodbye until another time my friend.
Lowell has lost a gem. Rest in Peace, Rick.
Rest in Peace Ricky. To a kind and gentle soul!
Rick made everyone feel welcome at La Boniche. There was always a familiarity about him that I couldn't place. After reading his obituary I realized that we were born in the same month and went to high school together. Dave Norton and I provided the music at La Boniche last night and dedicated our first song, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, and the whole night to Rick. He'll be sadly missed.
Ricky always made a visit to La Boniche like visiting a friend's home.He always made time for a welcoming hug, a smile and caring conversation. Will miss this loving man ... such a wonderful human being! love, donna miceli
I have some great memories of the times that Rick and I spent together but that was many years ago and we lost touch. I will always remember Rick as a man with a great smile, a quick wit and a kind heart - always there for his family and friends to do whatever he could. He will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him. Rick, thanks for everything you did for me. Rest in peace my friend………
I never missed the weather of New England,only the people.Rick was one of them and will miss his genuine personality.My sympathy to the family,who I also miss.God bless you friend.
May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always be at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields, and until we meet again my dearest friend my God Hold You In The Palm Of His Hand. We Miss you so much
Mike @ Glenn

Oh my God, Ricky was absolutely one of my favorite men. I couldn't walk by LaBoniche without going in for a quick hello and a big hug. I am so so sad, did not know he was sick. Very very sorry for his family and everyone that had the good fortune to know him, he will be greatly missed.
Rick's Smiling face will so sadly be missed. My Children and family remember his kindness, and love and dedication to his role at LaBoniche. We will proudly walk Sunday in his name at Lowell General Teamwalk for Cancer Care. Our thoughts and Prayers are with all of Rick's family and friends.
Good Bye our friend You will be sadly missed and forever in our hearts
