Ah Jeez, Ricky,

You went and left us.  You're gone.  I close my eyes and we are back in home room together, sitting next to each other, laughing.  Our C124 "rat pack," you, me, Sully, Scott, Sparksy and Marcia Taylor.  For three years we were together, mornings and afternoons.  For three years we laughed every day.  For three years Arnie yelled at us, laughed with us.  

Ricky, do me a favor, don't let anyone sit at my desk till I get there.

Rest well

The is nothing that I can say that will improve upon the beautiful words of Kevin Tracey.

I am sad to not be available to say good-by to Rick in person. I am sad that he is gone  But, I am hapy to have known him for so many years. He ws always there to help with the reunion projects. 

Rick...thank you for your service to this country.... Mission Complete and Rest in Peace my friend.

Dear Rick,
I wish I knew.
You were always helping others, and never reaching out.
You were a leader, and you never embraced that role.
I have 60 years of memories with you, even though were were apart so many times.
I remember riding my bike up your driveway and walking in your back door.  You would be sitting at the kitchen table, working on your second bowl of Wheaties,  reading the Newspaper.   I think you were 11 years old.
Like so many of our Classmates, we were married shortly after high school and we started our families. 
You showed me how to "master" a tax return,  and I still do them today.
We stayed connected through the years but golf and politics were our true connection.
I will miss your emails, and if you feel like sending them again from Heaven,  I'd love hearing from you again.
One favor, find a good course for us to play up there.  Can't wait to tee it up with you again.

Rick - I feel a strong sense of sadness. My memories of you start after high school when we were at Northeastern. You, Sully and I hung out during those years. A lot of us married young as David said and we spent time together during the early years of our marriage. They were good times.                                               

Years went by and we only saw each other at reunions. Last saw you at the 50th. Where did all the years go?You're passing happened to young. I always enjoyed being with you. You will remain in my thoughts.

Sad day.  He was such a great guy.  I now appreciate those days about 50+ years ago. I didn't think about what was to come. Now that we are in our 70's, the  "In Memory" messages are coming with more frequency now.  I wish they would stop, but such is our fate.  God Speed, Rick.

I remember Rick from High Rock Elementary School, Pollard Junior High School and then on to the hill. Part of a good group of people walking to school each day. After school listening to Dick Clark. Drag racing his mom's 55 Chevy stick 6. Thanks for your service Rick you'll be missed.

Thank you, Jaye, for posting the picture of the guys golfing. I’d never seen it.  I had so enjoyed getting to know Rick all over again while we planned for our reunion and was saddened and shocked to hear of his death.  RIP Ricky.
