Not sure what to say?

Dear Bridget,

So sorry to hear of Rick's passing. I have such fond memories of our time in high school and Rick's sense of humor. May God give you and your family strength in this difficult time.

Bridget, Annie and Lizzie,
Its been a few days, but I finally have the time to reflect on Ricky's passing. As you know we worked together for 36 years, but he was also one of my dearest friends. I am proud that he chose me to get to know.
I will miss him forever, and I know you guys will too. He was special in many ways. Ricky had a great sense of humor, he was bright and creative and dedicated to Boeing and to his customers. The Special Ops guys, (who Ricky called...

Dear Bridget, Annie and Liz,
I can't begin to say how sorry we are to hear of Rick's passing. We always loved to receive Rick's "stealth" phone messages around the Michigan/Illinois games and when he was in town. To be able to have dinner with him during one of his trips west a few years back was very special. The memories we have of PTA and Keysor's fundraisers, unloading pizzas at 6am we will never forget. We may be in LA, but we still hold Kirkwood very near and dear to...

Bridget, Anne and Liz: how sorry we were to hear of Rick's passing. So many fond memories of times with you while the girls were growing up and all the coaching Rick did of their basketball team. We are in California visiting Mallori. Our thoughts are with you and our prayers for you will continue.

Bridget: My thoughts & prayers go out to you and your girls. Rick did a wonderful job at the reunion. He will be missed!

I coached youth basketball with Rick awhile back. I will remember that he was very hardworking and very interested in making the experience great for everyone. Please accept my most sincere condolences for your loss.

Wow! So sorry to hear of Rick's passing. He was a valued co-worker for many years (and many years ago) as well as a good friend. After having left McAir 26 years ago, Rick would still call me every Holiday season to see how I was doing except for this past year, which, unfortunately, was a harbinger of his deteriorating health. Like all of us who Rick, I'll miss his upbeat outlook on life and his omni-present sense of humor....very much in the Jim Kamman and Fred Glaser mold, for those...

So great to see you at the reunion and to hear Rick's words remembering all the fun times from our high school days. He was always our "MC" and rightly so!! My prayers are with Bridget and her girls.....hugs!!

Lunches at Boeing will never be the same without the amazing story telling ability of "Senator" Rick May. He will be truly missed.
