I was sad to hear about Rick. I am glad that he was found and that some closure is possible. I didn't know him well, but worked with him when I was on dayshift at the galv. I thought he was a decent man. RIP Rick.

There is something so special about reconnecting with a cousin as adults. Rick was such a good friend. I loved visiting with Rick and Juliet at my home in Ottawa and at their home in Welland. Rick's phone calls supported me during the pandemic. I will miss you Rick.
