|I was so sorry to learn of Rick's passing. I always liked him. He had a quirky sense of humor. He will be missed.|
|Rick and I were close in age and our parents lived relatively close, both in Indiana and Kentucky, therefore we were blessed to be together quite often, as kids. He always reminded me that I was the one who told him there was no Santa! Thoughts and prayers to Dana and Emily. Rick will be missed by many.|
|It was truly an honor and privilege to get to know Rick. We became pretty good friends and had grown to respect and trust one another. The best thing for me is watching him put a smile on my mother's face, and watching them feel like teenagers again. I will miss him dearly, and can't wait to see him again. Love ya buddy...|

The best thing for me is watching him put a smile on my mother's face and seeing them make each other feel like teenagers again. I will miss him dearly and always wish we had more time but I know we'll all be together again someday. Love ya buddy, until we meet again...|
|I am stunned! We've been going to Walmart Vision Center since 2003 and Rick was so kind, always knew our names and just always had something funny to say. Will be keeping his family in my prayers.|
