Heather and family,
So very sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. I enjoyed working with him at The Meadows- he was so very attentive to the residents’ needs and went out of his way to make a difference in their day. He spoke often of his family and his face lit up when he talked about them, always excited when there was a trip away planned to visit. Rick always had a kind word, a smile and a positive attitude when he spoke to you- that’s what I’ll remember most. We still have the table he sold us about 18 years ago- he was a good salesman too! My thoughts and prayers are with you all🙏
