Rick and I have been friends since we first met as young teenagers. We grew up together, worked together and had many adventures. Rick was not afraid of anything. He was good to his friends and he loved his family. No man was ever more proud of his children. He was lucky to have Bridgett for his wife. He needed someone like her to keep him on the right path. I'm glad for the times we had together both good and bad. We helped each other survive during some of our toughest times. I will miss my old Buddy.
