Rick,
I am still in shock of your passing. You and Adela came into my life when I was down and offered me a job for a few hours a week. Those few hours turned into a full time job and years working with you and your dad. I will miss “hollering” at you from my window and just catching up every time we ran into each other. I will miss your yearly updates on the Calla Lilly that grows outside your front door. There are too many hilarious stories and videos of you I wish I could post here so people can see how full of life you were. You were the coolest boss and friend and you will be missed dearly! Rest in peace friend.

My sons loved their uncle Dude very much. He was always laughing, joking, saying inappropriate things... He was notoriously late to all family functions but we knew he would always show up. He will be missed very much but we trust in God’s promise that we will see him again.

Mijo, I'll never forgot you. You were a wonderful kid in our lives. I remember when you'd play with Curtis, Mike, and Joseph. I remember your smile. I've never forgotten your smile, mijo. We love you so much. We never forgot you because you were so special. I know you are in a better place even though we're all broken hearted.

I met Rick & Adela in 2005 at 12 year's old, Instantly we bonded. They became my parents while my parents were at work. I use to go over to the Water Store every day just to hang out with them. Growing up in South Central Los Angeles, you don't run across many people that are genuine or care about the community but Rick was an exception. I instantly seen Rick as a role model, he always was there for me especially during my hardest moments in life.

In 2012 I decided to go off to college in Tuskegee, Alabama, and attended the illustrious Tuskegee University. I went out there alone with little support, as much as my parents wanted to help me they just couldn't afford to. The only people that ever helped me were Rick & Adela semester after semester they made sure that I had all the school supplies & books that I needed. In 2017, I graduated with a degree in Construction Science & Management, and now working with Apple as Senior Superintendent in the construction & development sector. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be who I am today.

Rick, you will forever be my role model & I'm in debt with you. Thanks for all the help and support you ever gave me, and the many lessons you thought me. As I write I can't help but cry.... Just know I will never let you down and I'm going to miss you truly!

Love,
Kevin Zaldivar
