    Rick and I worked together for many years at FMC and then ICL. I always enjoyed talking with and working with Rick because he made it very clear as to where he stood on a subject, a trait you see less and less of these days. Rick will be missed by his co-workers, as well as, his family.
    May Godd Bless you and help you through these times.
