    Dear Lisa and Family
    We are so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. He was a kind and wonderful man both inside the workplace and on a personal level. He always listened, he always cared and most of all he always knew how to make the most of each day. I will miss his answer to my daily question, How are you today Rick? His answer everyday was “Fantastic!”
