Send Condolence

I knew Rick when he was a young man working at the YM&WHA. We would often swim together. My father, who long ago passed away, thought a great deal of Rick. In later years we would only see one another coincidentally but the relationship was always friendly and always looked back to when we were teenagers. I am sure you all miss him as he was just a very nice person.

Rhoda, so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. He was a Peabody 61 classmate of mine. He was a great guy and I enjoyed talking to him when we saw one another in school. As you may also recall, we are distant relatives via your mother, Yetta. Also, I believe you folks used to be in a bridge group with my folks, Mollie & Al Tannenbaum.

Rhoda, Josh and Madison. I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked for Rick his last couple years of practicing at Dickie. After he retired he would occasionally stop in a say hello. I knew every time there was a CLE he would be stopping by for a visit. May he rest in peace.
