Not sure what to say?

He was my friend...and a good one.

I miss him.

I will always have the memories.

My thoughts go out to Carol, Diane and Todd.

I offer my deepest sympathies to Rick's family on hearing this very sad news. I worked for Mr. Reinert as an animator from 1976 to 1977. Rick had an inimitable style, not only as an artist, but as a person. I feel very fortunate he chose to employ me and subsequently I learned a great deal from him professionally. Rick provided me the great opportunity to work for a legendary master of the trade for which I shall be eternally grateful.

Dear Carol, Tod, and Diane,
I just heard of Rick's passing, please accept Rose and my deepest condolences. Rick was a very unique and special person, who enriched the lives of all who knew him, with his imagination, humor, and love of life. I know he will be missed, however his spirit will always make us smile. My life is certainly richer for have known Rick. Memories of our great Caribean adventure will live in my memory forever.

If there is to be an memorial, Rose and I...

What a wonderful record of Rick's terrific life and honored career! He took me under his wing from the time I was in Junior High through 23 years working side-by-side, and taught me all I know about putting together an animated film, and being the best artist I could be. Thanks for giving me so much, Rick!
With fond memories of how good you were to us -- Dave and Jill Bennett

I will always have a loving memory of you, Uncle Rick. A wonderful, talented, generous man, you will be truly missed. My mom has been telling me so many great stories of your youth. Safe journey home.
