To one of my greatest nephews, who survived his childhood, graduated from high school, served our country and fought cancer like a hero. May he rest in peace.

I had the honor to be Wasco's FTO and then a supervusor at his current job. Wasco was always there to help out and to bring some levity on stressful nights. As the old saying goes "If I call you brother, you've earned my reapect." He was definitely a brother. You will he missed but never forgotten.

Ricky was a great student who grew to be a great man. I will always cherish the time we spent together at Carnegie. Rest in peace, dear friend.
