Rick, I never viewed you as a cousin but more as a little brother . A little brother that I looked up to and admired. I will always cherish every single moment we have shared. The good times and the bad . I am going to miss your sense of humor and the way we always had an inside joke. We have always been there for eachother. I wish I had been given one more opportunity to be there for you . You leave me full of sadness , sorrow and questions but Knowing that you are at rest and peace leaves my heart full of love , happiness and hope. You were a great man and I know you are in a better place . Please hold me a seat at the table ( not the adult table) and I'll see you on the other side . Give everyone up there a hug for me .
God speed rick .
