Please accept our deepest sympathy Rosemary , Ryan & family on the loss of Rick last Wednesday. We only learned of his passing late Saturday & of course were unable to attend the funeral. I knew Rick quite well while at Sprucedale & will always remember him as a kind ,consistent , warm & considerate man who was a true gentleman at all times.Rick exemplified what a male role model should be for young men with identity issues . He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him .
