My deepest sympathy to the Capaldo family. I had the privilege to work with Rick for nearly 6 years, and he made every single one of those days fun. He always made me laugh. He will be truly missed but never forgotten. Thank you, Rick, for every piece of advise you ever gave me from your "School of Life". God bless you and God bless your whole family.
