    Wow, what a shock. I feel deeply saddened. The last time I talked with Rick was over the summer out at Sundance. I used to work at Sundance with Rick, Dave Deem and Ross Butterfield. We used to go over to Dave Deem’s house at lunchtime and share stories as we watched All My Children. Rick was a good friend of mine. Rick was always one to say “Hi Bob, how you doing?” He put a smile on everyone’s face he talked to. Rick, save us a spot on the 1st tee in heaven.
