My dear friend Rick,
It has been 2 months now since you have left us and gone to your eternal reward. You so richly deserve the total and complete happiness of heaven that is yours now. I know you are happy there with your son Jeff and all of your other loved ones I can picture you taking Jeff for a ride in your red '57 Chevy convertible with Princess in the back seat :)
You always asked about everyone else before you ever said a word about how you were feeling. You cared so much about everyone else! Thanks for caring so much about my family,my Dad, my Mom, Rudy and all of the rest of my family. They all loved you too Rick!
You went through a lot through your life but it only made you stronger and allowed you to help others along the way.
Iremember any time we would go out to dinner or to the theatre, we would run into some of the kids from Bretz or some of your other friends. All of them obviously so happy to see you and I could tell that you had brought your friendship to each of them. Your sense of humor was unique and brought smiles to everyone's face.
I treasure all of the times that we were there for each other, and miss you a lot.
I'm so glad that we had the chance to tell each other that we loved each other as only really good friends can do. God has blessed all of us with you in our lives and now is rewarding you..
I will never forget you my friend.
Much love to you and all of your family,
