Hi Carole and family.  I’m so sorry to hear of Ric’s passing.  I know it’s been many, many years since I’ve seen either of you. But I do remember our good times when we were kids.  Laura.

Sorry for your family’s loss. I worked with Rick at the Scrap Bay during some of my time at Lukens. I enjoyed working with Rick. We had many laughs and worked well together. He was an intelligent and humorous co worker. Rick will truly be missed. Prayers to your family.
