I met Rick through a fellow acquaintance about 20 years ago. We became friends, attended our meetings together and socializing on occasion. He invited me to a world series game- Mets, Yankees in 2000. And I got to know Rick. He was a good husband, a good dad and raised 3 great young men. We had some verbal jousting at times, a few battles. But the next day, he would say, " Mikey, you know I love ya. " So I will end with, " Rick, you know I love ya. Rest in peace my brother. "
