Rick became my brother when I married his brother, Brad in 1986. He has always been very special to me. He was amazingly smart. Even though I’ve worked in nursing for many years and had some grasp of genetic illnesses, talking with Rick was like watching a plane take off from Boston Airport—a short runway and then almost straight up. His brains and understanding of genetic related illness was overwhelming. His wife, Marjorie and he were a great example of dedicated love. He was beloved by my husband, his brother Brad and our son, Jesse. He will be deeply missed by us all.
