Not sure what to say?

I'm sorry to hear of Rick's passing; I remember him as a great guy , standout long distance runner, and the winning quarterback of grade school pick-up games.May GOD Bless Sincerely Ed Capone

I was truly sorry to hear about the passing of a good friend and former student/athlete from Mahanoy Area. When I began my career as a teacher and track and cross country coach at Mahanoy Area, Ricky was one of my runners. I think he spent more time practicing with me, Jim Blankenhorn and Rich Blaker than he did at home. Those were great days, and wonderful memories. My condolences to his family and to George, Bill and Mary Theresa.

Please accept my sincere sympathy at the loss of your brother, Mary Therese. I didn't know him, but he sure sounded like a great, well-respected man. --- Marjorie

Dear Denise and family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. May the love of friends and family as well as your many pleasant memories comfort you at this difficult time.

I had the great privilege of working next door to Richard in the early 90s when I was at DCJS. He was a wealth of information; always willing to share and provide guidance. The Commonwealth's legal and law enforcement community has lost a great asset and a true gentleman. My condolences to the Kern family. Paul Ronson
