When the shock of this passing is only a memory, I will feel very very sad. A beautiful photo of a beautiful man.

Words can not express how I feel about the passing of Rick. He was one of my oldest and dearest friends. My deepest sympathy's go out to his wife, his family and his friends. He will be missed by many of us from Henry Ford class of 1972.

To Rick's family. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Rick and I shared a lot way back when. From grade school to high school. From Scouts as boys to Scouts as adult leaders. Throw in a many camping trips and a couple of road trips to Mardi Gras.

My God grant him eternal peace.
