I know Mr. Organ's son Alex, and I am so sorry for your loss. Your whole family are in my prayers. Though I did not know Mr. Organ personally, he sounds like an amazing person, and someone who was called to heaven much too soon.

to the Organ family I just heard about Rick and am so sorry for your loss. He was a great guy would always see him at PT Baseball and he would always say hello to me. God must have wanted another good angel to be watching over all of us. I lost my 15 year old 3 years ago.The heart will always hurt, but know that he is in a better place. The wonderful memories will get you thru this hard time.

Dear Tom, Babe and Family: My deepest sympathy to you and your family during this very difficult time. Although there's very little now that anyone can do or say, I hope you will find comfort from your family and friends. May you meet each day ahead with hope and courage, in knowing others understand and share your loss with you. Even though words can't take away the sorrow that you're feeling, I hope that you find
Serenity in knowing that your care, love, and courage, meant so much to Rick and that somehow, in some small way, that makes a difference and brings you peace.

Babe, Tom Randy and Robbie, I am so sorry you have to go through this tragedy, and that we can’t be there with you. Rick was nothing less than a warm and loving person. When he came down to South Florida and we had the chance to meet, it was like the years between visits never happened. We picked up where we left off talking about our most important gift, "Our Families". Reminiscing about the fantastic childhood and values that both of our parents gave us.I will cherish that visit.I pray that God helps all of you through this time.

Love always,
Anthony and Joni Cortese and Family

My sincere sympathies are with the many lives that Rick has touched. While we mourn his passing, we must remember what a blessing it was to have the time we did with him, and that we will see him again one day in heaven. I will miss his smile and sense of humor the most. His love for his family, children, and Lynn are an amazing example of how we all should live our lives. He will be deeply missed.

Rick was definitely one of the good guys I got to work with back in the days of TRBG. A dedicated and loyal friend to those close to him and a true Pittsburgher who loved his sports.
I got to see him after too many years to count at a Walk for Cystic Fibrosis and it was awesome to see that he was the same great guy.
To his children, family and special friend, may you cherish the much too short of time you had with him and remember the wonderful times you shared. May God bless and comfort you.
