Dad....I am at a loss for words at your early departure. I am thankful for many things, but here are just a few: Thank you for the times you sat and listened to my problems and for the bear hugs after your sweet advice. Thank you for teaching me 3 chords and giving me my first guitar (a Lotus electric which I still have). Thank you for all the fond and funny memories of dinner at grandmas. Many years have past, but you will always be Dad! I Love you Dad .....

Will always have much appreciation for the seed Rick planted in his son Rick, the gift of music. His son has carried it on beautifully, playing often all around the Fox Cities with our Isaac and Zoë. May you Rest In Peace Rick! ((Give Grandma a hug for me))
