My heart aches for Jan and all of his family. Always "Ricky" to me. Like another brother. Fun times when we all got together. Always lots of laughter. That is what I will remember. Until we meet again, cousin. R.I.P. Love you!

Rick always brought a smile whenever he would come to visit. I remember when my son was 3, Rick stopped by out of the blue roaring up on his Harley. Keegan was so fascinated (as any little boy would be). We have a photo on our fridge of Rick sitting with Keegan on the motorcycle and Keegan wearing Rick's helmet with the biggest smile possible! What a great memory! Rest in peace dear cousin!
