I remember about two years ago at the family reunion you had on glow in the dark glasses and you wanted me to make you earrings. I didn’t make you any because you were drunk and I knew you’d end up losing them anyhow. You said since your ears weren’t pierced you would just put them around your ears. I’m sure going to miss you uncle rick. I love you and have fun up there.

We were so sorry to here of your Dad’s passing. May god be with you and your family during this difficult time. We only knew your dad through working with him but you could just tell he was an awesome man. He was one of the hardest workers I have ever seen. We often ate lunch at the same table with him and he spoke of his famIly often. Always with a smile on his face. The love that he had for his family was so obvious when ever he spoke or told us funny stories. He will be missed by all of us who knew him. It is a sad day for all of us at Tecnocap. Stay strong and Glod Bless you all. Love Lisa & Eric Wilds
