Rick i met you through working at Sam's and you made a lasting impression on me not only as a great employee but as a person in general. Your going to be missed so much by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you. Until we all grace your being again as I know one day you'll return so until that day rest in peace my friend, rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

There isn't enough words to describe that beautiful soul rick was and is. He always made everyone smile even when he was having an off day. I am a better person because I got to share space with him on this planet. We don't realize how lucky and blessed we are to know some ppl until they are gone. Not in ricks case everyone knew and everyone loved (and continues to love) him for his humor, smile and positive outlook. Heaven is a better place with him there and we here are at a loss without that beautiful personality and smile. Rest my dear friend rest.
