Aww, Ricky, when I retired, I missed ya. Thought I'd see you again when you retired. Always appreciated your work ethic, your music, your guitar expertise, and your whole being. This world will be less without you. Wherever you are now is graced by your presence and compassion. I hope you are finally able to rest and be free.

Rick was a great man and a great millwright. Everyone I know enjoyed Whiteys stories, like the guitar he is currently fixing, or what gig he was playing that weekend. He will be greatly missed by all of us. Rest in peace brother.
